My Little Maiden Fern

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.  🙂

Painting 1 of 30 days January 1st 2017

Here is a truly new beginning.  Pulling the paints out and just going for it.  No fuss just play, could not come up with a “theme”  My theme is just to  “Just Paint”.   So as far as what I will come up with will be a mystery to me as well..  But thats ok.

So for my first painting of January 2017 is a small little still life  it is 5 X7 on arches paper.  I use mostly Daniel smith watercolors.  My inspiration for this painting was a picture I saw in a magazine.   Like I said this will be an interesting month of what I will pick to paint and how.  So there maybe some experimenting  going on as well as subject matter. 🙂dscn3937
