water mixable oil 6 x 6 inches
This painting from last week was somewhat copied from a watercolor (below) that I did in January. Its painted on a gessoed piece of watercolor paper.
watercolor 4.5 x 7 inches
After really committing to painting 30 paintings in 30 days yesterday I had a very bad day of painting. The painting I'd done the day before needed more work and I didn't succeed in making it better. Another start got wiped out. I was contemplating putting the oils away again. That's what I did last year when I was sort of getting the hang of painting with them and then got frustrated. Probably if I hadn't said on this blog that I was going to paint 30 paintings in 30 days I would have put them away. But I didn't and today's painting didn't get wiped out.
