30 Days of Painting is a challenge I set for myself so that I could become more comfortable with a paint brush, and turn my hobby into a daily practice.
Day 29: Hasty Geometry
I didn’t really have a plan today. I wanted to try something different, so I picked up a couple of colors I don’t typically use, at least not together: red and purple. This is probably my least favorite color combination for no discernible reason, so I though it would be a good challenge to see what the colors would lead me to do.
And this is what I came to:
It’s a little sloppy, but it’s just a sketch to see what I felt like doing with the colors. I added in some off-white, some gold, and some black, and went for a geometrical sketch. I like the underlay effect quite a bit, and there’s something sort of regal about the overall color scheme. I might try it again when I have some time to plan out a scene and take more time with the execution. This could make a great floor.

Welcome to 30 Days of Painting, where I do a painting per day for 30 days. I took a couple of days off, but now I’m coming in for the big finish.
Day 28: Sunset Colors
For today’s project, I want to play with happy colors – the colors of a sunset. I didn’t put too much effort (or any, really) into the foreground (where I usually spend most of my time), but instead put my focus on mixing colors to create a stronger, bolder, brighter light effect than I usually go for.
I think it worked out nicely.

This month, I’m painting every day and posting the results here. I’m nearing the end, but it’s been a lot of fun.
Day 27: An Oak Leaf
For today, I wanted to keep the autumn theme going (it is truly the most wonderful of all seasons) with an acrylic sketch of a single oak leaf.
Just a few more days to go, and then it’s back to longfkrm posts!
