For the 12th painting in the 30 in 30 paintings I painted an acrylic painting that I can use in my painting parties!!  This painting is a great painting for this time of year and I look forward to painting and parting with those that what to come out and have a relaxing evening!   

Foxy ~ Day 11 painting of the 30 paintings in 30 days!  This is a 6 x 6 wrapped canvas.  I had a lady ask me at last years Christmas Bazzarr Show if I had a fox painting so I thought I would paint one for today's painting so I will be ready for her when I see her at the show this year.  I also love painting animals and thought it would be good practice.  I'm beginning to fall behind in a lot of things while doing this challenge but I'm determined to  complete it!! Enjoy your evening  and I'll see you tomorrow!!  This painting is for sale and is on my website

For this painting I started with a coat of  brown acrylic, after which I used a thin coat of lemon yellow oil paint to sketch my subject.  I mixed my paints and their values. I took my time and studied each stroke before placing them on the canvas trying to paint looser and keep the vibrant colors.  Hope you have had a sunflower day!!  Until tomorrow!

The 30 in 30 challenge is going along pretty good.  I'm enjoying using different techniques along the way.  I am really being challenged now because I'm running out of canvas (going to the city for more on Thursday)! For this painting I started really early this morning with a thin acrylic coat of Naples yellow.  I then sketched using  thin oils of the main colors for the painting. I  mixed my colors (not enough for sure had to redo severl times)  then painted mainly with a pallete knife, which is new for me.  It was an experience, for sure!   I had lots of paint all over me and everything else. It certainly takes more paints with a pallete knife than it does with a brush. Enjoy today by feeding your creativity!!  See you tomorrow!!
