Holy moly, it’s been 30 days already!? I was worried about not having enough time but it went really well this season after all. It helped to make them on paper instead of on cotton canvas and it also helped with speed to make two side by side. Sometimes I was able to make two in one day, giving me a day’s break. I still made a few paintings that I’m not happy with and I wonder if I should make sure I’m several days ahead at all times, so I’d avoid painting on days when I really don’t feel like it. Not feeling it really messes with the results for me.
Tomorrow the next challenge starts – Inktober. Then I’ll be working in inks, I have several different colours to work with and I’m thinking of following the witch themed one but incorporating the official Inktober prompt list into it. We’ll see. For now, here we are, the light at the end of the tunnel, the end of the acrylic painting challenge. I’ll still randomly make acrylic paintings from time to time but ah, I should probably tend to that ignored pile of dishes and such as well, now that there’s no acrylic challenge to keep me terribly busy. Man oh man, this has been so much fun!
“Towards Light”, acrylics on paper, A4-sized.
Below is how the last two paintings look side by side.
