Day 19 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days More of Less

Today is the nineteenth day of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge


Meander
by Judith Flynn Lochbrunner
mixed media/collage
8 x 8 inches

After seeing all the wonderful abstracts at the Lynchburg Art Festival last Saturday, it was impossible to not push this painting in that direction.  The work had a wonderful start but it needed something different so I added bits of collage soon after I returned home.  After the collage dried it was time for the real fun mixing layers of acrylic gouache, watercolors and acrylic paint.  Much of the colors were added "wet -into-wet" which softened edges (and color changes).    All of this brought the painting to my goal of creating something a bit "different". 

Thank you for keeping up with this challenge.  The month is quickly coming to a close and I'm already sure I will miss the challenge when it is finished.

  3. The colors are not my "usual" which makes them more fun.
