I took this painting to the resting stage yesterday. I had applied a fair amount of texture underneath and then chose a purple and orange palette. The paint was thick and wet and any further work would have created a grey mess, so it was time to let it dry and darken before continuing.

Today I continued, applying coloured molding paste first, and after a short break I worked around the molding paste keeping close to the original purple and orange palette with a few surprises here and there. Towards the end I applied more texture and highlights. Sadly, you really can't see the depth and interesting quality of the texture in these images.

Although I painted it one way, when I finished I turned it to all four sides and I liked it each way, so I've signed it on the side to offer flexibility. My two favourite sides are these. Which do you like?

30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS - Day 28

WELCOME

POSTING
As a special gift to fellow artists I am allowing you to post on my blog during the 30 in 30 Challenge. I'm using the same type of system as Leslie Saeta, so if you're participating it will be easy. Please post  with YOUR NAME ONLY (not the painting's name or your business name) and a link to your web presence. 

VOTING
Posting ends at midnight each day and voting begins. Voting is open on all the previous days blogs from January 1st until January 31st. Three votes for each person every day. Voting opens when posting closes and continues till 31st January 2015. At close of voting the three most popular paintings rise to the top and remain there forever.

SHARING
All I ask in return is to spread the word to other artists and offer your buddies a chance to win prizes. If you blog, link to your entry on it. Share to Twitter, FB, Pinterest etc. with an easy hover and click on the thumbnail. To visit the artist and tell them how much you love their work click on their thumbnail.

PRIZES
Prizes given to the most active artists and voters that participate throughout the month. Posts, Votes, Comments, Shares etc. There are many prizes. A newcomer can still be a winner. To make it fair for late comers, a prize will be awarded for the highest vote count on one painting during the whole party. So invite all your supporters to visit and click on all the VOTE links below.

It's going to take me a while to tally so I'm announcing the winners about a week after votes close on January 31st. Click here to see some of the prizes available ... more will be added. Top winners pick first and so on till all the prizes have been awarded.

On Review there is no clear winner yet. Many days show a draw between two or three artists.  A few votes will really count, so make sure you vote each day using the links below. Vote for your favourite artist and then use your other two votes to select from all the other hard working artists.

Good Luck everyone.
