Day 11 of 30 day challenge Jan 2017


Quick little wet in wet 2 x 5 inch painting done on arches post card.  It was a paint and run kind of day.   I think for fun for next few I will take a picture of the inspiration and possibly works in progress pictures. Its fun to see the progression I think.  This little painting really just went on as you see it.  Not to many layers.

I honestly am shocked at myself to continue with this challenge. ¬†What I have been doing is grabbing a piece of watercolor paper, ¬†and have several pictures to choose from. ¬†They are quick wet on wet, ¬†at times I have two going just to give the first painting a rest so it dry’s a little bit. ¬†These are taking no more than 20 min to 45 min ¬†to finish. ¬†Pretty soon I will start a more ambitious painting to work over a period of time. While still doing these quick ¬†paintings.

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. ¬†ūüôā
