Throughout June I participated in the #30x30DirectWatercolor Challenge. I experimented quite a bit, so most of what I painted isn’t worth showing. But I got brave and painted Van Gogh’s Clogs. I actually got to see this painting at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. Wonderful exhibit.
It’s June, again! Time for the #30x30DirectWatercolor Challenge 2019. The idea is to paint a watercolor each day in June without an underlying drawing. Yep, just paint directly onto the paper. hahahaha
Here’s what it looks like when I do that.
A sunflower in watercolor. My goal was to paint it in the Cubism style. How hard can it be? Apparently, pretty hard. This could be labeled modern, maybe, or abstract. But Cubism? Probably not.
I used the supplies in the August 2018 ArtSnacks box to create a watercolor seahorse. The ArtSnacks challenge is to create art using only the box contents. Somehow I managed to do just that this time. They also put a piece of candy in each box (thus the “Snacks” part of the name). That was the first thing to disappear, even before I started painting, but you can see the candy wrapper.
Day 3 of the Simply Watercolor class from Onlinecardclasses.com. This was an exercise of letting (or making) the colors overlap.
