Thirty Paintings September 2018
I love putting the collage together from the month of paintings. It'a a great reminder of all we accomplished. Share your collages here and then pat yourself on the back. Congrats!
"Sunset", 30" x 30", Acrylic on Canvas
Woo hoo! We did it. Thirty days of thirty paintings. What a month!
Seriously, it's awesome that you participated in this challenge.
Tomorrow you can post a collage of all of the paintings that you completed in the 30 in 30.
I usually create my collage with an on-line program called picmonkey. Just go to PicMonkey and select "create a collage". You can use one of their designs or you can design your own. To make a collage with 30 photos you will need to design your own with six rows and five columns (or you can use one with close to 30 spaces and just add the additional ones). Then you can drag your uploaded photos in to the collage until you are done. (When you drag in a photo, you can see where to place the photos as you move them around. If you move them around carefully a small gray bar will appear and you can create columns and rows by adding more photos.) One suggestion I have for you is to be sure to use lower resolution photos as it won't upload very large file sizes. If you try to upload all 30 and it won't do it, just re-size your photos until it works!
It's a fun tool to use. You can change the width and color of the grid lines between the photos and then save the completed collage as a jpeg on your computer. Please post your collages here on tomorrow's blog post! And it doesn't matter how many paintings you completed. Create a collage to show off the paintings you created this month. And post it on this blog tomorrow!
"Gray Beach Day", 20" x 40", Acrylic on Canvas
I cannot believe we have only one day left. Let's make it a really good finish!
"Colorful Beach", 24" x 24", Acrylic on Canvas
I honestly can't believe we have two days left in the Challenge! I am happy. What about you?
"Low Tide", 24" x 24", Acrylic on Canvas
Sorry the photo of my painting is not great. I have a hard time when I photograph art in the evening because when I try to add light with my photo editor it makes everything blurry. Ugh!
"Gray Day", 36" x 36", Acrylic on canvas
Four more days to go. I am one happy girl. How about you?
"Pink Sunset", "24" x 48", Acrylic on Canvas
T-5. But who is counting, right? Hahahaha.
"Hot Sand", 36" x 36", Acrylic on canvas
When the weather is warm at the beach, the sand gets hot. Sometimes it is unbearable. I know it's fall, but it is pretty warm in Southern California. Don't get me wrong, I like warmer weather. But a new season is also a good idea.
"Deep Water", 36" x 36", Acrylic on canvas.
I typically paint light and "happy" paintings. This one is a lot darker. And I love it! Lots of texture from the palette knife.
"Cloudy Skies", 36" x 36", Acrylic on canvas
Wow. Day twenty-two is pretty amazing. We are in the home stretch. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I am!
