Today is the first day of September and the first day of a 30 Day painting challenge. I have decided to do 30 days of painting.... not necessarily 30 paintings. Today I have started a bee and flower painting. I took a photo of this friendly bee last year in our garden. We had lovely flowers, unfortunately I didn't plant any this year. This little (or shall I say BIG) bee was happy and let me take its photo with no threat to me or the bee. I am starting this in watercolor, however I do not claim to be a watercolor artist, so if it doesn't turn out, you know why. I am contemplating doing an underpainting in watercolor and then adding my pastels on top, to make it "pop".
Thank you for stopping by I appreciate all my readers! Cindy
Today turned out pretty well. I actually was excited and not a bit of fear. I'm sure some of you remember when I was so afraid last time when I did my very first demo. That wasn't long ago, only in November.
I didn't finish my painting yet, because lots of people were coming up to visit and asking questions, and telling me their stories. It was a great day. So... my next "showing" is Saturday. I will be in Droitwich in Victoria Square. I am one of the Artists in View with other Artists of Droitwich Arts Network. If you are in the area I hope you will be able to make it to see all the great artists, this is the first Droitwich Arts Week! I am excited! I hope to see some of you on Saturday (I will be there 10am to 4pm). Thanks for dropping by, I appreciate you all! Cindy
