Day Twenty-Eight, 30 in 30 Challenge

Day thirty is growing near and I haven't toyed nearly as much with color as intended.   Knowing this would be a short studio day, I set my palette last night with hues I thought would vibrate in a seascape.  Starting with pinks at the top and working down from there, was easy going until  I reached the water. Oh My!    The  "vision" was  a heavy background mist and birds diving  for food  making delightful splashes doing so.  No time for birds, but I shall add them later after the paint has dried. Will post sometime next month.   Didn't leave much room for the foreground sand so had to keep it fairly simple.   Just couldn't handle those small brushes again today! Was liberating getting back to larger brushes on a slightly bigger surface  and actually "playing" with color!


  1. Beautiful! Love the colors. You have done well in your challenge.

    1. Thank you so much, Jo. I am pleased I've been able to keep up! Proud of most of the pieces - thought you might do this one since you sketch everyday! Maybe in the future?
