Day Three of 30 Paintings in 30 Days – Another Portrait

Going For It & Improvising

Sometimes success is showing up and going for it. That’s how today’s post feels.

This is another portrait improvisation. I try to start and finish in one sitting, which is not my usual approach. For me, this is a test of wits. I have to be able to think on my feet rather than mull over and ponder my next move.

Day One – Thirty Watercolor Paintings in 30 Days

Its About Production

I’m embarking on a watercolor painting adventure for the month of September.  Who knows, maybe it will become a habit? I’ve signed up to participate in Leslie Saeta’s “Thirty Paintings in 30 Days” and today is day one.  Why accept the challenge?

  • Production – its a numbers game; the more you produce, the better you get.  Certainly, this is the case with watercolor paintings
  • Overcoming “fear”, or at least learning to deal with it.  What kind of fear?  The fear of getting started, the fear of not being good enough.  You get the point!  I can excel at fear if I let myself
  • Because I like watercolor painting challenges
  • My artist friend Karen Knutson participated last January and it seemed like fun
