January 2015..Day 2 "Blue" 30 Day Painting Challenge

"Blue"


This is Day 2 of Leslie Saeta's  30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. I'm having fun playing with watercolors as clay has always been my first choice, so this is a double challenge for me. Maybe I will find a way to combine the two somewhere during this month's challenge.

 Anyone have a particular kind of fish you'd like to see me paint for this challenge? Leave a comment....

"Blue"  5x7" Watercolor and ink

    2. Hi Corinna! My grandfather was a wonderful watercolor painter and my brother is also very good....maybe I have "the artist gene" :-) I need some direction and will be taking a skills class that starts next week. Looking forward to seeing your other 28!!

  2. I stumbled across your work while looking at the 30-Days of Painting blog -- Wow! Love the colors you use, and the whimsy! I, too, look forward to your postings throughout the remainder of January. A lion fish could be fun! :-) Are you going to be selling any of your work? Thanks!

  3. Hi Claire,
    Thank you for that! I'm enjoying doing the fish. Lion fish is a great idea, and a challenging one! All of the work will be for sale. Thank you for your interest and comments...are you painting in this project?? :)

    1. Unfortunately, no, I'm not painting in this project -- I'm a wannabe-artist. :-) One of my artist friends is participating though and that's how I found your work!

  4. Marni Maree is participating in the 30 Days Project. She's doing a series of camels in watercolor -- they're beautiful! On Day 1 she was entry #103. I'm drawn to colored pencils and watercolor. :-)

  5. Thank you for giving me the camel's number. Makes it easier to find in all those paintings! The camel is gorgeous...I've bookmarked her site so I can follow her work. Thank you... What kinds of things do you like to make with the pencils and w/c?

    1. I really don't spend as much time as I'd like on my art -- I end up doing more crafts -- but when I do pull out my pencils I seem to gravitate to frogs. The colorful frogs. I've used watercolor with some of my pencils but would love to take a class on just watercolor. I love how vivid your watercolors are!

    2. Frogs! What a range of fun colors there. Let me know if there is any place I can see your colorful frogs. :)
      Thank you on the colors.
      I went with your lion fish idea. It's #100 (at least for now).
      For a great place to look at color, I go to the work of one of my favorite artists...Hundertwasser. If you haven't already seen his work, have a look. It is, in my opinion, amazing...

  6. My husband likes this one the best. Of course, his favorite color is blue. I too have chosen Fun as my theme but I am just having fun - your paintings are fun.

    1. Thank you. I like the idea of Fun as a theme...your snowmen are really fun! I find fish delightful so painting them is very enjoyable. Look forward to seeing more of what you are painting
