I am doing the thirty in thirty again. I think I just like torturing myself.
The first time I did it, I just painted 30 random things.
The second time around, I painted 30 dogs.
This time I am painting the same thing 30 times. Well that is if I don't kill it first. I am painting an amaryllis. I am just sorry I picked a flower that I can't spell.
I have been thinking about this since Leslie announced the challenge. I just couldn't think of something that excited me. All of those things that I thought of, dogs, plein air, food etc I just didn't look forward to doing them for 30 straight days. Yesterday I ran into a flower shop and saw the flower in a pot, and I finally started feeling something. What if I did the 30 paintings for fun? I paint the same subject but each day do something new, without caring if it is a successful painting but just having fun experimenting. Now I am excited.
Today I drew a pencil sketch.
