June 2 day (2 of 30 paintings)

Woohoo day 2 Pansies caught my eye. Love them! Takes a lot of viewing to paint them more realistic. Also controlling the paint and figuring out the color mixes. I will include my picture I have been using for these first few days.

Measures about 1 1/2 x 3 inches taken by my mobile phone.

June 1 day (1 of 30)

Ok so here I go, 30 paintings in 30 days.  Today I had time to do a few in one sitting.  I realized I may not be able to paint on some days so will do some in advance for the those days where life gets in the way. Today was all about pansies. First painting taken in sunshine and also in shade. Not sure which is best. Have a wonderful day,hope you get to paint today

Taken in the sunshine colors look muted.
Same picture in shade, difference shows in colors. 🤔 Interesting..

My 30 paintings in 30 days!

This I must say was an eye opener, when we say we don’t have enough time.  It is So not true ,I have proved to myself that I can find the time.  I was really entrenched in this process this month, and had a fun time doing it.   So now I need to keep this momentum going, painting away.

These are my 30 , and pleased overall.   Thanks for taking a look 🙂picmonkey-image

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.
