2/30 January Painting | “Quill Pen”

By | January 2, 2017

Day 2, 30 paintings in 30 days.

One of my goals for the new year is to paint in January.

My theme for all the paintings will be “writing.”

I bought a bunch of smaller canvases today. Most are 6″ x 6″. I thought that would make it easier and faster to paint my daily picture. I still spent almost three hours on it.

I realized that painting flowy feathers is hard. I painted over this one a couple times and was pretty frustrated at one point. I almost stopped at painting #2 (below). But I was embarrassed of it. So I painted over it a third time, and carried on, deciding the flowy feathers would have to wait for another day.

I’m happy with the final result.
