I did it.
I signed up for Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days again.
I haven't painted for awhile - because of the holiday hoop-la,
so just jumped right in ...
just like the New Year Polar Bear Plunge swimmers at Auke Rec in Juneau!
(except I was much warmer than they...)
My set-up, right in the living/great room.
Doing each painting on 6 x 8 inch Arches Huile papers prepared
by wiping on some Transparent Red Oxide + Medium (mine is made of Liquin and Walnut oil alkyd) to condition the paper so it won't soak in the oil as much.
|3pm Juneau 6x8 inches oil on Arches Huile Paper|
My limited palette (for awhile anyway)
is three colors:
Pthalo Blue, Quinacridone Red, and Cad Yellow Light
I made myself take my glasses off and because the light was fast-fading at 3 pm, painted quickly. I hope to learn to loosen up and relax about painting with this challenge.
Thanks for checking in
