Day 27 - Pining for October

                                         Acrylic on board 15cm x 15cm (6" x 6")

I only had a very small window of opportunity for a painting today, so I tried to be very fast and loose. This nearly became a wipe-off but hopefully it looks like the pine-cone it is supposed to be. I would like to re-visit this subject again when I have more time.

Only three more paintings to do for the challenge! I'm glad, as I doubt I'd be able to keep this pace up for much longer! Although, I've certainly been enjoying the journey.

  3. You really did very well. It is a lovely painting. I too will be glad when this month of painting is done...I have started to long to paint watercolour again and I know this because I have started watching watercolour painting videos when I am working! ;) Hope you are enjoying your beginning of spring. I have a son that is in Melbourne and his enjoying his first spring.
