Day 4 of Thirty Paintings in 30 Days

Well I’m pleased with my first painting for the Art Life E-Course I’m taking! Never ever have I ever painted or drawn a giraffe much less a mama and baby. This is the animal my daughter wanted me to paint. The assignment asked for a solid background, animal, rice paper, flowers and fluid paint. If you have never tried fluid paint it is a must. With my paintings I try to be looser instead of being so meticulous. When using fluid paint you can’t be meticulous.

The images you see coming through the background is a collage. This is another element that is mandatory for the e-course. I love how you can see the collage underneath. I will be adding my mama and baby to my paintings for the Thirty Paintings in 30 Days serieshosted by Leslie Saeta. This is my first time participating in this event, and hope to have some great paintings to show.

I just got through with the STRADA Easel’s 31 Day Challenge to paint or draw from life for 31 days. Make sure to check out my portfolio from January on Facebook and Instagram.
