Coming in January...

Just giving you all a heads up as to one of my plans for January. Leslie Saeta is running her 30 paintings in 30 days challenge again this year. I must admit this is the first time I have heard about it but am keen to participate. You can follow along with everyone, or join up yourself here... http://30paintingsin30days.weebly.com/

One of the things I have been thinking about lately is that I need to do more painting. So what an opportunity to do just that. I am telling you all here to try and make myself accountable. If I've said I'm going to do it then I am more likely to follow through. You know how it is...

Before Christmas I bought 2 sheets of Arches watercolour paper and this morning I got busy and cut it up into 30 sheets. Yes they are small. Around A5 size but I figure small is less intimidating. Small can be lots of fun. I have larger pieces available as well if I feel the need. But I think it will look pretty impressive to see 30 paintings all the same size.

So here they are...

30 sheets of watercolour paper.

I am thinking I will follow a theme for my paintings, or possibly short runs on a few different themes. Just see how things go. Possible topics are faces, cats (of course), and food. Of course they could end up random. No pressure here to do a certain thing except paint. I hope to try some different techniques and colours. Most of all I just want to have fun and do what I love - paint.

I will post updates showing how I am going during the month.
