Daily Painting Jan 10 - Jan16

Horticulture Centre of the Pacific

This past week I have been trying to get back to painting small sketches. I would call it daily painting but usually I do paint daily, if only for a small amount of time. This is different in that I am trying to complete one painting a day in an hour or less. 
I do find that slogging through a large painting takes a different type of focus and can sometimes feel overwhelming. The sense of completion that comes when I do small, quick paintings or sketches can feel so satisfying. Plus it loosens me up for the big stuff. 
 I am also travelling more and I need a more portable studio while on the go.
I found this lovely watercolor sketchbook that is 12x12" and absolutely love the square format. 
My hope is to continue with the daily sketches but might have to scale it back a bit at times while I get the big stuff done. However, I am one week in and so far, so good. Below are my images from this first week of these little paintings. Hope you enjoy! I know I did.

Thanks Jennifer. I'm so glad you told me which one you like. I'm always curious to know what others are drawn to.
