December 17, 2009 - Day 129

Acrylic on 300lb Lanaquarelle hot press watercolor paper

I don't know what was up tonight but my hands just weren't steady. I had to repaint one eye at least 5 times because each time my hand would tremble just that little tiny bit and mess things up.

Usually when I paint metal I use shades of yellow, yellow ochre and brown mixed with white but tonight I thought I would try a metallic gold paint that I had on hand. I like the way it looks but I don't think I will use it very often. It might look nice splattered on an abstract painting - if I was ever to do those again.
