I already said that I’m pleased and proud-and I really am. This is the first time in quite a long time that I’ve managed to do 30 pieces. There’s nothing wrong with doing fewer-it’s all good practice and a wonderful learning experience. But, as I’ve also stated earlier, I was determined this time to do all of them – mostly because I spent so much of last year painting far too little and it’s time I work at being the artist that I can be, that I want to be! If it’s in you, it’s something you need to do; it’s something I NEED to do!!!
Collage, all of my February 2018 30 in 30 challenge paintings!
I spent a lot of time in my studio over the past 16 hours. In that time I finished my day 21 painting, “Spring Gold”, drew two more pieces (one about half painted) and needed to do something more quickly to try to catch up. I thought butterfly, started painting without a drawing and ended up with another iris, to which I added a imaginary butterfly. So, loose and quick, here also is my Day 22, “Iris & Butterfly”.
I’m running a day behind, but I have completed my Day 3 painting. From a photo I took, I thought this would be a cinch to do quickly…but found that it took me all of the 30 minutes and I’m still not 100% pleased with it! But then again, I always seem to struggle with painting yellow flowers! I actually completed this much earlier in the day; having no time to scan and post it, I’m currently doing that while waiting for parts of my day 4 painting to dry while I get this one online.
