Diane Mannion, 30 Rose Study, 8/10" o/c
Last of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge!!!!
Hooray! Dancing a jig! Glad I did this challenge and glad it's over.
Some of the things I learned while pushing the paint brush this month:
1. Some paintings came out great, some not so great... but something was learned from each one.
2. I can paint under pressure and tune almost everything else out.
3. Don't have to have ideal painting conditions. Can ignore studio clutter.
4. Can paint inside, outside, in the car, or in the classroom while teaching.
5. Can paint and teach/talk while doing a demo.
6. Larger paintings take the same time for me to do as much smaller ones.
7. I can paint faster and looser.
8. If it's not finished, I can call it a sketch or study (great discovery).
9. I can stop working on a painting before over working every detail.
10. I can have more fun painting, not take it too seriously.
11. Can push technique and experiment more!
12. I can paint 'till midnight if I must, but don't like it.
I enjoyed being part of the almost 300 hundred artists that also painted in this challenge. A special thanks to Leslie Saeta for leading it. Please visit her blog to look at the other artist's work. And listen to AHA, Artists Helping Artists Blogtalk Radio. Here's a link to the Challenge show.
