For my Day 12 painting for Leslie Saeta's "30 Paintings in 30 Days" Challenge I used one of my own photos of a rooster. This was done with gouache, mostly fresh out of the tube. I wanted to see if the colors came out richer and they did. I don't paint from photos very often, but it was a very dismal, wet day here in NY yesterday.
Don't forget to go over to Leslie's blog and check out the work being posted by the other artists participating in the challenge.
