I always try to challenge myself with each new painting.  Still, there is always the thought at the back of my mind that reminds me that I don't want to screw it up.  I decided that I needed to create a painting where I could play and try out ideas with without the fear of failing.  I picked up an old painting demo that I wasn't attached to and jumped in.

The purpose of this demo was to block in the values in simple basic shapes.  I loved the light on the portrait, but I had no plan to develop the painting.  It was the perfect piece to play with.
