Seeds have been added, does give it a little bit more sunflower look to it.

Day 25 Working on learning how to use the yellows.  This is a sunflower that the picture was cropped just catching a portion of these huge sunflower in my yard a few years back.  It needs something.  I will repost the final picture on this day 25 post .  I need to get back on it and add the seeds in the center.  Things got so muddy I gave up on this one.  But worth going back to it and give it another chance.  This is why I share its the good and the bad, and everything in between.  Enjoying the journey!

Day 24 of 30 painting challenge January 2017

My little painting of a yellow pansy, picture taken in my yard a few years ago.  I  used this cool purple watercolor that had tiny shiny glitters in it.  The name escapes my memory right now.   I promise in the future I will list some of these fun colors I have picked up over the years.

This painting is literally  just 2 x 4 inches. good things come in small packages.

Day 23 of 30 Painting challenge January 2017

I really struggled with this one.   Over all in the end I was happy with how it turned out.  Not even close to the picture I used for inspiration.  It was an owl.  Not sure what people see when they look at those piercing eyes.    I am finding more and more, I use less of the picture and just do what my painting soul tells me to do.

This painting is not very big, its about 7 inches by 9 inches done on 300 pound  with  Just slightly  textured surface.   I love the heavy papers.. no taping no stretching and no curling.

Hey there, day 22 ¬†8 days to go before this challenge is done. ¬†WOW amazed I’m keeping up. ¬†This little painting is about 2 inches by 4 inches done on a piece of ripped watercolor paper. ¬† So very rough edges 300 pound cold pressed paper. ¬†The heavier the paper the more water it can take.

Day 20 ¬†Happy to say I’ve been keeping up with the challenge. ¬†Not overly happy with this one. ¬† The wintery scene just looks static, the river is going up hill.. ¬†almost like it is a road way. ¬†Will promise myself to do this one over, at a later date.
