30 Day Daily Painting challenge: Day #1

The first day of the daily painting challenge was pretty epic. It took me a bit longer than four hours. Instead of going for something simple, I decided to go with something super challenging. Live and learn! Tomorrow I’m going with simple. I’m also going to set up a nice shelf for my still life. It’s a bit tricky trying to get decent coverage, I will for sure pre-prep my canvases with a coat of lead white and raw umber and allow to dry. This way I would get way better coverage and my paint will have something to adhere to.

  2. Hi Naomi

    when I read your posts they resonate well with me! Thanks for your writings.

    I have a question about the palettes you suggested, Birch Plywood. Can I use them with acrylic paints? I have yet to try painting with oils. I hope to soon. I am going to try the 30 day challenge, your 5 reasons are a great motivator.

    Again thank you so much for sharing! It is very generous of you.

    *Kind Regards*

    • Hi Addie, thank you for your kind comments 🙂 The birch panels are to paint on. I use those instead of canvas as I prefer a hard surface. For painting acrylics I recommend Stay Wet handy palette, this will keep you paints from drying out.
      Yes do the painting challenge, you will be so happy you did. It’s hard work but worth it!
      Happy Painting!
