Day 30!! the final 30×30 direct watercolor challenge 2018: popsicles. and sketches of my work space.

30 paintings in 30 days, without a pencil sketch first… ideally these would be actual completed paintings, but my personal challenge was simply to try 30 exercises, directly painting for any amount of time every day. I did miss a day or two towards the end, but made up for them (I feel) by several very long painting sessions. I ended with very simple sketches today, all for swaps I’m participating in. For one, I need a “popsicle” item for someone, so I’m making a card with a little sketch I just did.

For the other, we needed to describe our creative space. Instead of printing a photo to mail her, I painted/drew some little sketches of favorite or interesting bits. Here you can see a favorite little chair and pillow, a plan for hanging my watercolor tubes on my pegboard, part of my watercolor pencil holder, a couple of favorite brushes and pencil, and a general outline of my little studio… dogs included…

…and here you can see a black work center I have… it’s a big heavy cabinet my daughter was fortunate enough to have found for me a few years ago through Craigslist… it’s killer heavy but has lots of storage, and an electric outlet, and a fold down work surface! I can see mistakes I made, but they were only supposed to be very quick sketches. I like them, and it was fun sharing with her (and you) a little about my creative space.
