I’m waitlisted for 30/30/30 and will only get to do it if someone else cancels, so my oil painting productivity has slowed down this week. Instead, it’s watercolors and nudes all the time, which I find more inspiring than still lifes. If I get to do 30/30/30 after all, I’ll do something in this style instead. It’s just more fun.
