Day 3 of 31 – January Painting Challenge


January Daily Painting Challenge Day 3 of 31
“Montville View Study 1”

Day 3 of the 31 day challenge for January.

Day 3 of the 31 day challenge for January. Today’s painting is from a plein air trip up to Mapleton and then on towards Montville in the Sunshine Coast. I found this terrific spot on the side of the road and painted two quick studies.

This is the first of them and I think this will end up as a larger painting and also an episode of Learn To Paint TV soon.

A definite improvement over first two days. Not sure how many more I will do on watercolor paper though … we will see.

Today I was reminded of the value of painting on site. You see so much more and you are immersed in the beauty of the subject. You get to not only see but also experience the subject and that shows in your painting.

I did this little study and another one which I will share tomorrow.

My goal is to try out new ideas and different compositions. Experiment, play and have fun. By painting daily of course it will improve my skills as well.

I will sell most of these sketches on Ebay for no reserve auctions. Some will be used as ideas for larger works, and some may become episodes of Learn To Paint TV.
