Paint and Brushes – Day 9 of 30 paintings in 30 days.


Well what can I say?   I *loathed* this from start to finish.  I was so bored I was just slapping the paint on willy nilly.   I don’t know whether it’s the subject matter which is less than inspiring or whether it’s because I’m painting a completely different subject every day and the enthusiasm is wearing off or something else completely.   I do have to say I really didn’t enjoy painting something like this from a photo.  The values were too flat and I couldn’t see any nuance in the colors/planes to liven things up.   So lesson learned I suppose – painting from reference photos is dull.

  1. It may have bored you but it came out nice. I've gone back to see what else I missed from the challenge. Nice pieces!!

  2. I kind of love it. The paint feels a little slapped on, but it's appealing. It speaks to the process of painting. Like you were in a hurry to get painting and grabbed your brushes and paints.
