30 in 30 Wrap Up
and what I learned.
This is not all 30, but I couldn't get all 30 on one.
You have to be smarter than the template or program and I obviously am not.
Anyway, I learned a lot from this challenge. One of the things was perspective finally started to come together during the challenge. One of my favorites is the motorcycle because of the buildings in the background. All of a sudden how to get the perspective correct came to me, after much study, practice and observation. Then I did the city scape and after several failed drawings I realized where my error was and was able to correct it and paint that painting. The boat brought it's own form of perspective issues, which I began to understand and was able to see clearly how to paint it. I had a breakthrough while painting the bright red and yellow carnations and daisies. The carnations and all its ruffles had always escaped me, and then after studying the actual flower I again saw how I could do it.
Learning how to see is huge to an artist and I learned this more during this challenge than ever before. I still have so much to learn about observing and seeing, but I feel like I opened a door to know how to do it and know what I'm seeing.
Thanks so much for following along during the challenge. If you have a favorite I would love to know what it is. Just leave it in the comments.
All the paintings will be on display during the month of October with an opening reception, Friday, Oct 3, 4-8 p.m. If you're in the area, please stop by for food, friends fun and art.
You're the best.
