Not doing very well at getting 30 images done for this challenge.  My experience is I have to feel it before i paint.  so far I have destroyed 3 canvases yesterday.  Also forcing it isn’t giving me the results I want.  So this one is a graphite on paper.

Natalie \n(a)-ta-lie\ as a girl’s name is pronounced NAT-a-lee. It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Natalie is “birthday“. Refers to the birthday of Christ, or ChristmasFrench form of Natalya. There was a fourthcentury Saint Natalia. The “h” is silent in the French form Nathalie; some American variants (like Nathalee) are phonetically spelled to retain the “h” sound. Actresses Natalie Wood, Natalie Portman; singer Natalie Cole.
