Day 12- 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
Wow, it feels so good to be done with my challenge painting by 4:30, instead of nearly midnight!
This painting is a redo of a subject that I painted a couple of years ago. This time, I used watercolor, whereas I used gouache last time, and the other change that I made was to use a square format this time.
I really like the simple shapes in this painting, plus I love patterns, so that was really fun to paint. This brings back such good memories of my time in Rapid City, SD, when the Northern Plains Watercolor Society hosted a wine tasting party on one of the evenings of my workshop. I loved teaching there, and am going back in August this year to teach "Painting People with Personality"; this includes everything from Crazy Ladies to paintings similar to this one. By the way, I learned how to use simple shapes from Donna Zagotta, an excellent instructor.
