Day One of 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
This was started as a plein air watercolor, loved how the sky turned out, but struggled with the rest. Thought it a good excuse to salvage a work, experimenting with lifting, scrubbing and scraping... all the while thinking, "Can this painting be saved?" Just barely, I think, but great practice for the next.
Have decided to paint watercolors for this 30/30 challenge, my fourth! Will paint small watercolors while also doing larger oil paintings and plein air studies. Last I heard, over 700 artists have signed up for Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge! Visit site here.
