Sunflower, #26

                                                  Sunflower
                        Watercolor over Textured Acrylic on paper, 10 X 12

I'm caught up! This is my painting number 26 but it's posted on day 29 of the "30 paintings in 30 days blog". The blog has one official day left but I will have 3 more paintings to do to complete 30. This has been challenging but fun. I had to push myself on some days. Some of the paintings were quick and sketchy but the important thing was that I painted every day and that's a good thing. I don't think I've ever painted 26 days in a row before. I'd like to develop some of the ideas into larger, better paintings. 
This painting done on one of my gesso backgrounds was fun to do. I'm getting to like the textured gesso for a background more and more. It's a very forgiving surface to paint on and I think it makes for an interesting painting.

  1. Congratulations for being so focused and accomplishing what you set out to do! I think you did some really nice work in that number of days, too! Think I'll scroll back and look at all of them again!
