Goal of doing one small painting daily/weekly going well so far. This next one is something I had idea for a long time ago, when I first started using acrylics. Never did complete the first attempt due to frustration with the medium. “Apple Tree in Bloom at Sunrise” turned out just as I imagined. So excited, ready to go on to the next!
Have sooo many ideas and thumbnail sketches in my sketch book. Would really like to get to these compositions. Had heard of doing a painting a day; checked out a few websites. Decided I needed to paint in smaller format, just to be able to get it done quicker. Will be doing 8″ x 10″, no smaller, as it gets harder to see details and maintain control. First composition, “Snow Scene”, done for my art class. Took 3 days to complete to my satisfaction. Guess this will be a painting a week. That’s OK with me. Painting daily, I should be able to finish a work in the same week as when I started it. Reminds me of line in a song “Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house we go”. Putting me in the Christmas spirit already
