DONE IT!!! Day 29 and 30!!!

Am not sure if it a sigh because I have finished and will be sad not to be doing as much painting over the next few days or a sigh of relief because I have actually finished and don't need to do as much painting over the next few days!! It has been a test that's for sure and I feel quite a sense of achievement having completed all 30 paintings. Last time I didn't manage it so was determined to give it my best shot this time!!

As you will have seen I have done a few studies of my art equipment so this is the final one in that series... some tubes of paint!! Not drawn just painted very loose and fast. Fiddling is very tempting with this sort of thing but often best left alone as soon as you see something happening!!

And the final painting!! A single snowdrop painted with one of my favourite colour combinations.... Schmincke May Green, Cobalt Turquoise and Winsor Violet and no reference, just a fairly free impression of the flower.
