"30 Days of Paintings"
So what have I learned during this "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge? For starters, I didn't think I'd have enough ideas to fill up an entire month! But even now that the challenge is over, my head is spinning with thoughts of what to paint next.
It's true what they say: "Every day you don't practice, you're one day further from being good." I wish I remembered where I got this quote because it's an excellent one, but it's become my mantra this past month. I look at my earlier paintings from the beginning of the month and compare them with my newer ones, and am amazed at the improvements I've made already (in just a MONTH!!). From brush technique, to composition, to color mixing… it's baffling how much a person can learn just by painting one small painting a day.
I've already thanked Leslie Saeta profusely for creating this challenge, and the letters she's received from other artists have made it into the latest Artists Helping Artists podcast (including mine!).
And although I'm really loving this small, square format, I'm looking forward to working on some of my other larger pieces that are already in the works! I hope you'll continue to follow me here on my Blog, or on my Facebook Page. I'm also a new member of DailyPaintworks.com, and I hope that you'll come visit me there too!
