30/30

This is the last painting in the challenge!  It's one of my favorites!

And thank you to everyone who stopped by to check out my paintings during the challenge!  I really appreciate it!

This is WHAT I DID for the 30-day challenge:

  • Focused on color, value and design. 
  • Tried colors and color combinations that I don’t normally use.
  • Mixed most colors.
  • Used a very limited palette.
  • Used thick paint/used thin paint. 
  • Painted tight/painted loose.
  • Experimented with bigger brushes.
  • Experimented with tiny brushes. 
  • Documented all color choices/mixtures for each painting.
  • Scraped off a couple paintings and started over.
  • Did a painting in less than an hour.
  • Photographed paintings every day.
  • Posted all paintings – even the ones I felt didn’t work well.
  • Knocked an almost-finished painting off my easel face down on the floor.
  • Got over my fear of putting my paintings “out there.”
  • Looked at a lot of other artists’ work.  Was very inspired!
  • Got up most days at 5:00 to paint.  
  • Painted for 30 days.
  • Started mindfulness meditation.  
  • Started Qi Tai Gu.
