My painting a Day commitment - one watercolor still life in 9 days, not very prolific!
I had a feeling that weekends would be hard but thought I'd get it done during the week. But on the way to Center City at a Mummers Day Party, I started sneezing and 8 days later am still subpar.
So that's my excuse.
In addition, snow and taking down the Christmas decorations and my two vintage shops all ate my time.
I also have a great dog whose portrait I'm doing, but I'm not counting this as part of the daily challenge.
But I am encouraged! This is my second try at watercolor and I see a lot of things I'd do differently, but there's plenty of still life objects in my house that I love...all vintage from the 1930s to 1960s. I really want to be looser and quicker and fresh with my watercolor paintings and I feel like I've gotten a good start with it.
