It really does feel like a holiday today. 😊 Spending this sleepy afternoon with a quickie painting and my first mug of coffee in 28days! πŸ˜‹ Simple joys. ❀

Just two colors to make a myriad of greens. 😍 Ultramarine and Hansa Yell. Med. with a swipe of Goethite for the tree trunks, that's it! I'm kinda liking this method, it saves me from color overwhelm (but not from paint hoarding, I'm afraid πŸ˜‚).

Thank you Disneyland for bringing out the 10 year old kid in me! 😁 Did this quick sketch of Main Street while stranded at the airport the other day. The buildings are lopsided! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

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
