Today was Day 1 of the 30x30x30 Challenge - 30 artists create 30 works in 30 days - all on 8 inch square canvases = 900 paintings to be sold for $50 on Saturday 15th September, 2012 at Darlington Hall, Darlington, Western Australia.
Check out their blog which features me as today's artist: http://30x30x30challenge.wordpress.com/2012/04/02/challenger-10-michelle-reynolds/
I was very excited to be chosen as one of the participants and have been looking forward to getting started. There were so many questions that popped up as I began:
How many should I start to prepare?
Where will they all dry?
Do I have enough paint or will a quick trip to the art shop be in order?
What am I going to paint on this first set?
Do they have a spare 30 canvases for my other ideas that would like to be painted?
Do you see that white little square, bottom, middle of the paintings? Yes, this pic shows a size comparison between the largest paintings I've created and the 8 inch or 20cm square canvases - size is only one of the challenges.
I decided to prepare 12 canvases with the basic layers which will build up into a painting of depth.
Another covering layer will be added then I'll have fun stamping and dripping and deciding what they will become. Oh such fun and such great challenge too.
