30 paintings in 30 days for the month of January!
Happy 2016! For the month of January I am joining a worldwide challenge to paint 30 paintings in 30 days. Through the blog and website of California artist Leslie Saeta, hundreds of artists around the world will post a new painting each day.
I decided it was a good challenge for me to undertake – any reason to paint every day is a good one! I also decided that I would use these paintings to do something a little different. I had been wanting to work on figures for quite a while now, but I’m always drawn to landscapes and allowed that to take precedence. For this challenge, I am painting figures! Yay! I am using drawings I have done from life.
This first figure is from a drawing I did a few years ago, but loved so much I framed and have it hanging on my wall! I have wanted to do it as part of three canvases, so my plan is to paint the other two this month, as well.
