1st painting - Chicken Head Knob

I have painted this on gesso primed MDF using burnt umber, ultramarine blue and titanium white. It is available to bid on and buy through ebay starting bid is £1.00 and will be sent out when fully dry, which might take a week or so. If you are the winning bidder I will keep you updated! The size is 16cm x 12cm.

Dan Young, Daily

Welcome one and all to my new project. I intend to make a painting a day. Inspired by lots of the enthusiastic daily painters I have found online particularly Duane Kieser. I aim to invigorate my painting practice by becoming a slave to paint again. If anyone finds this little section of the interweb and becomes interested in the paintings most will be for sale through ebay so grab a bargain!

Today is the first day of the project so, I need to get started making lots of supports to paint on! I tend to work on canvas, board and primed paper and I anticipate the paintings that appear here will be relatively small, no bigger than 20cm x 30cm and probably smaller.

okay here we go.....
