30 Paintings in 30 Days-Day 30


                            She Changed Her Mind (And Her Feelings For Me)

  This is the last painting for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge.  I made it through the whole month and didn’t miss a day.  While, I’m proud that I hit the 30 paintings mark, I’m not sure I am completely happy with the results.  I could see that my interest was waning in the last week or so with most paintings.  And a lot of it was because I was growing bored with doing quick paintings. I did enjoy working with watercolor paints quite a bit this month and I’m not sure where to go next because I also would like to do more oil paintings (like today’s painting) and gouache.  I was hoping at the end of this challenge I would walk away knowing what paint media I would like to go to in the future.  Today’s painting is one that has been around for a couple of months and it has been a struggle.  I struggled with the subject matter and the technique.  But, I made myself finish it last night  just in case I wussed out on sharing it today.

  I can say that for October, I will be participating in challenge of doing an ink drawing everyday of the month.  It’s an online challenge called Inktober.  Much like the 30 Days challenge, I’m heading into it by the seat of my pants, with nothing predrawn.  So, we will see what comes out of it.
