Day 1 was a first for me in a couple of ways! This is my
first 30 paintings in 30 days challenge and also, this was my first experience
with plein air painting. I painted on the beach! I received a very generous
gift card to my local art supply store for Christmas and with upcoming beach
trip for New Year’s Day planned, I spent part of the card on an outdoor set up.
Honestly, this may be something I never would have purchased for myself
I tried to limit my palette and really only bring
necessities. Here is the result of my first effort. It’s painted on a flat
piece of canvas, not stretched, but would look nice framed.
