Three Huddled Pears
Daily Painting Challenge - Day 31!
The last in this series of pears. I used another of the boards I had pre-prepared with a magenta ground.
I tried to keep things loose - put down a brush stroke and leave it.
And I got used to painting on magenta. This forced me to used slightly thicker paint than I would normally.
...AND today is January 31st! I have painted every day for 31 consecutive days. And that's not counting the paintings that were too bad to post!
This challenge has just been great to get into a routine and make time to paint.
Things actually got easier, not harder as time went on, which I was surprised by.
I will still be painting everyday, but not posting every day.
New goals, things to work on and new things to try in February:
Experiment more with palette knife
Try introducing some abstract elements
Experiment with other surfaces (canvas / linen / cradled boards)
Experiment with other sizes (widths / landscape / portrait)
