Day 13 – Leslie Saeta’s 30 Paintings In 30 Days

This is a quick one, as I am on my way to meet a friend. Pauline Agnew’s Open Studio has started, and I am always so inspired by her. She asked us to take a look at her Pinterest landscapes board and choose one that spoke to us. The one I found… made me want to play with color too.

Here is my painting for day 13. Watercolor and gouache on Yupo. Took less than 10 minutes.

Don’t you just love how the green is pulled towards the blue? I took a quick photo of that, I was afraid it would dry differently. This is saved at 72 dpi, so I apologize, some of the fine detail is lost,

The painting below was my inspiration. Completely different look and feel, due to the difference in mediums. I was not trying to copy… I just had to play with the blue. The blue is gouache, and the green is watercolor, and that may be why this happened. I am going to play some more with these two colors.

Hope you are having a super weekend. It is a HOT one here. If you love to look at art as much as I do, be sure and check out Pauline’s board… she has a lot of great boards. And take a look at today’s creations here.

    WOW! This is beautiful. It is amazing how the colors pushed and pulled each other! And only 10 minutes!!! Oh goodness….I forgot about Pauline’s open class. I will have to try the next one – way too many things on my plate – darn it all. Have a wonderful day and Happy Painting to you. Have fun with Day #14.
