Compilation of 30 Paintings in 30 Days, February - March, 2018
Thank you so much for joining me on this latest 30 in 30 journey! Thanks for the support and comments from all "new friends" as well as those "old friends" who have faithfully followed and offered the perfect words of support. As always, thanks go to Leslie Saeta for providing the platform, especially in the midst of her own personal struggles this month.
Feel free to read additional comments below for a more in-depth commentary on this 30 in 30 experience.As always, creating 30 paintings in 30 days allows for a massive learning experience that is often a bit of a roller coaster ride. Some days are joyous - other days - not so much.
Over the past 30 days I intentionally focused on such things as:
- mastering the design of a square space
- working with white space
- revisiting gold leaf
- not over-working a piece - i.e. knowing when to stop
- using various substrates - from unsized rag watercolor paper to cradled birch panels
- refining my palette within a piece
- mixing shades of the same color with its complement
- etc., etc., etc.
Some things were intentional - but oftentimes I let the painting direct the process. Frequently, an intuitive approach is the most profound teacher!
