Day 10- 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
This marks 1/3 of my journey in this challenge, started by Leslie Saeta. I've learned so much in the process, but I have to say that it's the hardest thing that I've ever done! Because I committed to painting people, it has been so good for me! I noticed that I have been painting in the same color scheme for quite some time, so I decided to change it up a little today. I saw a painting on the HGTV channel today, that had purples, oranges, sage green, grays and gold tones, and I thought, "Those are the colors that I will use today!" Actually HGTV gives me lots of ideas on not only colors, but in designing my paintings. Designing a room isn't that different than painting a painting. You need to repeat shapes, have high contrast in some areas, and soft edges in others. Rest areas are important and simple shapes are a must. That's a hard one for me, because I really enjoy negative painting, and sometimes I get carried away! Because I painted this so late today, I was forced to keep it simple. A good thing.... This watercolor painting is 10" x 10" image, and is available for $95.
