Here's another Colored Pencil landscape, my third since finding my long-lost (years lost) colored pencil landscapes (read about that "miracle" here). Please bear with me as I remind myself how to use these things; as I paint with them, I have memories come back of things I used to do and tools I used to use. And sometimes, it's too late because I have already filled the tooth of the paper, so I have to stow away my tips to myself for the next painting.
At the beginning of this 30 in 30 Challenge, I told myself I would be happy if I got 4 paintings done that I like. I have already exceeded my goal (AND reunited with my colored pencils). I think I will always be primarily an acrylic artist, but these CP's are helping me to keep up with the practice of painting daily.
Thanks for being here!
For those of you who read my intro to my challenge on the first day, you can skip the rest of this post and not miss anything. I kind of consider what is written below to be my "full disclosure" and may post it every day throughout this challenge:
Notice I did not say 30 Paintings in 30 Days in my Subject Line? Most of my artist blogger friends are doing a 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. I'm along for the ride, but my intention is to have 30 painting days in 30 days, not to complete 30 paintings in 30 days. I would LOVE to do 30 paintings in 30 days, but I quickly figured out last time that with my schedule, I would be placing myself under far too much stress to make myself do an actual 30 paintings. After all, I don't want to come out of the challenge hating the act of painting!
Leslie Saeta is once again the initiator of the challenge, and you can follow the challenge on her blog. Over 200 artists are participating. So many great things happened to me the last time I joined the challenge (read about it here), that I just couldn't resist saying "YES!" again."
