30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day One

Day One 
7.5" x 7" - watercolour - $30.

I came across Leslie Saeta's blog recently and saw that she often challenged her artist-readers to paint 30 paintings in 30 days, and the next one was to start on New Year's Day - today! I spent several days thinking about how I would approach this endeavour, considering size, surface, media, and theme. I also didn't want to spend the whole day working on a smallish painting as I would never get back to completing some large canvases that have been incubating far too long, thus painting with watercolour on paper seemed the best way to go. Here is today's effort. Cheers!


  1. Beautiful portrait full of sun...
    I love its simplicity and the gorgeous colors!
    Happy challenge, Patricia!

  2. Drawn to her contemplating look. Beautiful color combinations.
