Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day Six

Pin It
Oil, 6" x 6"

One of my goals during this challenge is to try a different color palette. I am experimenting with a more muted palette. It has been interesting to say the least. I have found that I mix what I think is a muted palette but when it hits the canvas the colors are still really bright. I am learning I need to be patient and enjoy this learning process. It's frustrating but also eye opening.

I am back home and once again in the company of my small palette knives and 35mm camera. Yay! Tomorrow I will start some larger paintings and I am so excited. It's will be great to be in my studio all day for the next 24 days.

Unfortunately I also have a huge to do list that I need to start focusing on. If I hope to achieve my goals for 2014 I am going to need to spend at least two hours a day working on these items on my list. So it's going to be a very busy month. And year. 

I am still getting emails and blog and facebook post from many of you about how this Challenge has improved your sales. And to think, we are only on Day Six! Congratulations!
