My drawing and painting life

30 paintings in 30 days January 2016

I am joining Leslie Saeta in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge in January of 2016.

Leslie is a painter and art teacher, who organizes this challenge for painters twice every year (which must be lots of work , so hurray for her!). I joined in September 2015 and now again in January 2016. The idea is to challenge yourself to paint more. For this reason I started a series of paintings in watercolor. I may not get to 30 paintings – they take a bit of layering. For this reason I start adding paintings I made earlier than this month.

I will post images on this page (more or less as we go).
