Here is my contribution to my 30 in 30 challenge. Day 2 I did a small painting 5 X 7 on arches watercolor paper . I do not spend a lot of time painting these. I probably spend about 1 hour from start to finish. Its wonderful to sketch loosely and keep the painting loose as well. I am typically a very tight painter and typically spend a lot of time drawing out and painting. So this is very good to work out.. being loose. 🙂

Beautiful plant! Love the colors and background. I see lots of people painting for 30 days – are they following a site or something? Do they have a particular subject or style in mind? I wouldn’t mind doing a 30 day thing but I need direction.
Hi Carol,thanks so much for your kind words. Yes there is a particular web site who hosts this 30 in 30. Here is the link to this blog.
She has all the information on how and when. She does it twice a year January and September. I did it for the first time in January. Everyone post their painting on a page for that day along with hundreds of other painters. There really are no rules, some do themes,for myself just putting paint to paper was enough for me.
I hope you do it in sept, you certainly can do it on your own.🤗before September. happy painting!!!
Thank you Diane for the info. I will check out that link. 🙂
very nice sketch
Thank you so much!
High five! I wish I could paint like this. I always end up tight and heavy. Love this!
Thank you Sheila! , I was the queen of tight and heavy and not knowing when to stop.
Always working on that, and little by little its getting there.
