100 Days Project

Janet: One alla prima painting, every day for 100 days

I'm going to paint alla prima (i.e. start and finish in one session) every day.

Day 20:


Today is day 20 and a bit of a milestone. I've never painted 20 days in a row before, and am absolutely enjoying doing it. There are huge benefits in just getting on with it - not procrastinating, delaying or avoiding starting (yes, even though this is a pleasurable pursuit, this does happen). I am looking for shapes, shadows and light. Although I'd love to be producing masterpieces there is real pleasure in painting everyday objects as a motif for this project. I have been asked twice now, why I need the structure of the 100 day project to motivate me...am not sure of the answer.
