September 30 day painting challenge – Day 2

Hi Everyone!
Did you have a good sleep after the long drive yesterday?

Today is our FIRST STOP in the 30 day tour of Wales.

We are Visiting…    

Abaty Tyndyrn… ( WELSH for “Tintern Abbey”)

Actually, the painting is of one of my thimbles that I purchased when we visited Tintern Abbey (years ago).

This is a 14″x11″ watercolor painting of the Tintern Abbey Thimble.

I had to have a “photo shoot” of my thimbles so I could get a bigger version of them to paint,

as my thimble was way too small to paint from.

Here is an example of how little the thimble is compared to how big the painting is…

OK, so if you are wondering about the words on the thimble… NO, I didnt paint them … they are too hard to do in the short amount of time (one painting per day) and especially on a 14×11″ painting.

Also, this is a watercolor, which I am not used to painting. I am a pastel painter mostly.

But I wanted to change, and I jumped in the deep end and decided to do a “DOUBLE CHALLENGE”… WATERCOLOR AND 30 paintings


Tomorrow a bit more…

Until tomorrow…. thanks for dropping by.
