Local Pond

Local Pond, 6x8.5" watercolor, ©Diane Mannion


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.
