VIDEO Painting at the Urbana Library

My local library has the most lovely location, and the nicest little café, AND it’s within walking distance, which makes it a favorite hang-out of mine!

This time, I tried out Lefranc & Bourgeois’ Prussian Blue for the first time, and I’m not gonna lie: I fell in love with that paint! I use it in almost everything I paint!

30 Day Challenge Wk 3: March of OCs

Week 3 has now come and gone! Comparing to first few paintings, I can tell that I’ve gotten more confident when it comes to using thick layers of paint, rather than thin, watery layers.

Only a few days left! I’ll have to come up with a new painting challenge for April… Any suggestions?

30 Day Challenge Wk 2: March of OCs

IT’S SUNNY AND NOT FREEZING ALL THE TIME YAY.

 

I’m pretty proud of having made it half way in this challenge! These gouache paintings are the highlights of my days, and I just enjoy them so much! I’m looking forward to having all 30 at the end of the month.

My goal for the second half of this challenge is to really get into bold, bright colors. I love the soft, gentle pastels, but gouache looks sooooo rich when it’s at “full power”! So here’s hoping I can muster the courage to turn it up a notch (or 10 ha ha!)
