Done and over with! πŸ˜„ Here are all 31 entries for my Skies of July challenge. ⚠Long read ahead!
I honestly could not be any happier that this challenge is over! The goal was to get faster at painting and better at skies, and somehow, i did. :) I noticed my paintings at the end of the month weren't as overworked compared to the early ones.  My trees and structures looked better, too! Yay added bonus! 😁 What i did NOT expect though, was to get bored halfway through the month. πŸ˜žπŸ˜… Due in large part to my schedule. I never seem to have the time to capture the more interesting skies of sunsets and daybreak. I got stuck at the 5-5:30pm mark. πŸ˜‚ July was also gloomy and rainy so I have a lot of grey skies making it feel monotonous. But despite my disinterest, I forced myself to finish one each and every day, to sit my butt down and paint no matter what im feeling. Test of patience and determination, indeed! πŸ˜‘ Kinda like life, right? We expect glorious sunsets but get rainy skies instead. We don't always get what we expect yet somehow we find ourselves still working, moving forward. I guess that's my biggest takeaway in this challenge, apart from the improvement of skills, it's GRIT. Plain and simple. 😊 Now that my time with these postcards are over, Im moving on to bigger pieces for something big this November! 😁 Wish me luck!
Oh, and I hope everybody gets to flex their grit muscles, too! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ #worldwatercolormonth #worldwatercolorgroup
