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.
