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!
I enjoyed some not-oppressive weather by painting outdoors at a picnic table in the park! It was so quiet and serene!
Another little painting in my sketchbook at a local café! This sketchbook is a Stillman & Birn Beta series sketchbook and it is easily my favorite for painting on-the-go!
Roy Lichtenstein has a boldness with his colors that amazes me. I tend to stick with softer, more subtle tones, but for this one I wanted to go ALL OUT with the primaries!
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?
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!)
