Yes, yikes is right. I have signed up to do the
30 paintings in 30 days September 2014 challenge
that Leslie Saeta is sponsoring on her blog.
She set up a website and there are by now
possibly over 600 artists all over the world participating.
She encouraged us to have a theme and I decided to do "Stuff In My Refrigerator" since there are probably at least 30 different things :o)
I will be posting not only the paintings here on my blog, as well as on her blog -
but hopefully the paintings' progress too.
For a sneak peek,
the days up to Sept 1 will be the quick and tiny thumbnail sketches, in preparation.
|pencil sketch 2.5 x 2 inches|
For this one, I actually did a charcoal sketch with an alcohol wash before painting.
And for all of the 30/30 paintings, I prepared a few 5 x 6 inch but mostly 6 x 8 inch pieces of Arches Oil Paper. Those sizes were the best utilization of the 16 x 12 inch pad of paper.
