Here... We... GO!..........
#10 Day 23 – 30 In 30
This one is an abstract, it just made me smile, when I first saw it, it looked like a happy sunflower waving so fast in the breeze it was a blur. 🙂
#9 Day 29Another abstract. Sheila commented on how she could change it but I like the fact she is trying different things, going back and forth between abstract and impressionism.
#8 Day 16In this painting, Sheila did not add a background color and she showed how it looks with a frame. I like it with a black frame it makes the painting "pop".
#7 Day 9Sheila explained how she was having trouble with the colors, and there was a big water drip that she had to correct. I like the way that she explains each step, even though she makes mistakes, she still includes it all.
#6 Day 10Day 10 you can tell that Sheila is really enjoying her painting. She had sprayed the painting with more water and started having runs, but I love the way the water makes the colors mingle together. She calls it a "happy accident", it certainly is happy 🙂
#5 Day 24In this painting, Sheila stepped out of her comfort zone and used a palette knife to create this sunflower. She criticizes herself often but I think it's great she tries various techniques that she is not that familiar with.
#4 Day 7Sunshine and Rain.... that is the name Sheila gave this painting. She describes what Yupo paper is and some other artists that use it. She did a good job with her watercolors using Yupo paper, in depicting the "rain". And the sunflower is lovely, as it made it in my top 5. 🙂
OOOOOHHHHHHH..... GETTING CLOSE TO THE END...
NOW FOR MY TOP 3 PICKS OF SHEILA DELGADO'S
30 DAY PAINTING CHALLENGE 🙂
#3 Day 4Sunlight ©2015 Sheila Delgado. Sheila explaines the way she is trying to get used to using Yupo paper and that she likes it better wet. I think she capture the sun's rays very well in this "abstract" of the sunflowers.
#2 Day 20OK I must confess... I really don't know if I should put this for my #2 favorite or my #1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PAINTING! I like all the background color and how Sheila has used the water to manipulate the watercolors, and it just seems "busy", but I really do love this painting. Oh, I just can't make my mind up if this is number 2 or number 1 as my favorite! It might just have to be a tie 🙂
OK.... DRUM ROLL...............................................
MY #1 FAVORITE OF SHEILA DELGADO'S
30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS.......
Nah... it's a tie with #2 actually 🙂
#1 Day 3Sheila explains how she is starting to use Yupo paper and she is practicing on painting more loosely. This painting is one where she used a palette knife too, so she is trying different types of painting. I love it Sheila! 🙂
Well, there you go, my top ten of one of my fave artists I follow. Sheila took part in a 30 day painting challenge hosted by artist Leslie Saeta. I tried to do the challenge, but failed miserably. Hopefully if Leslie hosts another painting challenge I will be able to join in, I am still recovering and taking care of my health. Right now it is either take the time to exercise for my health or paint, and now I am listening to my body 🙂 Hopefully by the next one, which may be in about 3 months, I will be in tip top shape to join in. 🙂 OK back to Sheila Delgado. You can follow Sheila's blog, you can also find her on Pinterest. She paints all sorts, but this month was a lovely month of sunflowers. I hope you enjoyed this post, if you are a fan, please share my blog. I am grateful for each and every one of my readers and I intend to give you great content. Who is your favorite artist? Thanks for dropping by, Ciao for Now! Cindy
