30 Day Challenge - Day 22 - Can of Flowers

As one of my Valentine gifts my husband bought me a bouquet of flowers. I originally put them in a glass vase but decided they looked too stuffy and formal. Instead I placed them in a tin can and used that as the subject for my Day 22 gouache painting for the "30 Paintings in 30 Days" Challenge.

You can view the other artwork being created for this challenge here.

For those of you who may be interested in an upcoming challenge, both Marc Holmes and Liz Steele are organizing a 1 week challenge to sketch 100 people. It begins on March 5. I am hoping to participate again like last year.


  1. I like the casual, too. Lovely sketch.

  2. The can definitely makes the bouquet less formal and your sketch of it is charming. Joan, I don't know where you get your energy; once this challenge is over I will not want to see a paint brush for days! I will look forward to your 100 people in a week sketches.

    1. Val, thanks. I have to sketch or paint. I get anty if I don't. lol

  3. Vibrant, rich colors! When your 30 days are up, I hope you'll write a post about what you learned and explored with gouache -- I'm always interested in hearing about process! And of course I'll join you for 100 people!

  4. The blog are the best that is extremely useful to keep.
    I can share the ideas of the future as this is really what I was looking for,
    I am very comfortable and pleased to come here. Thank you very much!
