Leslie Saeta and has artists from all over the world submitting paintings on a daily basis. I find this Challenge to be a good January, get with it, project! I started painting before the holiday start date so that I would have a few paintings ready to go, but I will be working daily to have new postings as we go. That is the goal, painting daily to push my skills.
And, I am trying something new to me! The paintings are done with watercolor (my usual medium) but are painted on 4" x 4" canvas that is 1 3/8" deep. I am using Daniel Smith's Watercolor Ground. to coat the canvas, let that dry for 24 hours, and then I paint. When I finish I seal the watercolor so that it is ready to hang, or sit nicely on a book shelf! During the holidays, I wrapped the canvas with red ribbon, and they could be used as an original ornament. Very fun!
