Day 29

Only 1 more day to the end of this 30 day painting challenge. I returned to Animal Kingdom for my last 2 pieces. Here I wanted to paint this mini car at the Vacation Club kiosk.

Day 28

Stopped to get a study of the signpost/lightouse thingy at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon. There was nowhere to park so I had to snap a quick pic with my phone and work from that. I'd like to go back and refine this one. But this is a start...

Day 27

the final stage I added more details, laundry on the tree, signs in the background and I could keep pushing this more and more but I like where it's at now.

Day 26

Step 2 in painting the ruins near Asia in Animal Kingdom. I've finished blocking in my background areas, added highlights on the trees and ruins. Also got my ground and pathway solidified. Next step will be adding the last details.

Day 25

in Animal Kingdom again painting the ruins near Asia. This time I thought I'd do a step by step for the next few entries. Here's my under painting, I start with a gessoed canvas in either grey or warm tones (this one is yellow ochre toned, then I block in my darks and major shapes. I use a big 1" brush for most of this stage, in the next stages I'll start to refine things like the trees walkway and ruins.
I have to go out of town for the next day or so, so we'll see if I can post again Monday or Tuesday. Hope you guys like.

Day 24

I love the Rain Forest Cafe, and it was here I found my next painting of the Aquarium. I love the lighting here. Even though it was indoor lighting it made for a very interesting piece.

Day 23

Just 7 days left for this 30 day painting challenge. For day 23 I chose to do a study at Animal Kingdom, of a snapping turtle skull. It was behind glass but clearly visible enough to do this piece.
