In my previous post, I was halfway through my 100 days challenge with gouache. Now, I've finished the challenge, and I cannot believe it is done!

In the last 50 paintings, I tried to use more of my own photos or just my imagination. I also tried a more illustrative style, which I personally ended up not liking that much. It's all about trying and learning! But I prefer realism, after all.

The challenge has taught me a lot about colors and painting itself, which was the reason for doing this challenge, to begin with. However, I really have this feeling I've to up my game and that's why I've decided to make another 100 paintings (not within a specific period of time, though, meaning I can focus on quality). These will be based on my family's or my pictures of my beautiful country The Netherlands. It will mostly be nature, and I'm going to try and focus on one style. I've included the first four paintings of this new challenge in this post!

This one is my favorite... it gives such a nice sense of calm and peace, and the colors and textures are amazing! I wish I could just walk across a ravine in a forest on a long with... a chicken in front of me!? Jus had to ask, it would've made the experience a whole lot better.

Makes me think of the tremendous fires we've had on the West Coast and in Australia.

I love how bright the candle looks on the black, so cheering.

I used to own a fish just like this one, she (maybe he) passed away at eight years of age.
