With the entrance of winter and the beginning of a new year, I feel pulled to go deeper within myself and do some re-inventing of sorts. My inner artist desires to be challenged, to explore new styles, mediums, and approaches. I decided to partake in a challenge to myself, 30 Goddesses in 30 Days.
Through this study, I am exploring more free forms of painting using Peerless Transparent Watercolors, a medium new to me. My goal is to capture the essence of an emotion or a glimpse into the spirit of a goddess, and do so in a more minimalistic style. Normally my painting is very detailed and labor intensive, done in a Contemporary Folk style with acrylics.
My intention for this study is to allow myself a "freeing" of sorts, while creating a simple yet profound subject within the woman essence.
The use of the Peerless Watercolors is a quest in itself, using a medium that is a free spirit all on its own. I have to remind myself continually that less is more in this project.
I will be offering this study, each painting done on 9x12 watercolor paper, in our Artfire shop. Sharing my challenge allows you to go on the journey with me, seeing how I evolve through the process and how the Goddess's manifest.
This Sunday, January 18th, is the emerging of #1 in the series, titled "Compassion".
