Maria Radun: A Painting A Day Project

Art Lovers | 20 March 2021

Written by Maria Radun


This project is a celebration of my love of oil painting.

I believe there is beauty all around us in the smallest and simplest of everyday things and if you look, you can find inspiration anywhere.

I wanted to challenge myself to create a small painting every single day this month just to see how far I can push my artistic skills. A project like this requires not just creative thinking and focus, but also time management and discipline as it becomes part of your life. I find it very rewarding, grounding and immensely satisfying to paint daily.

So far I’ve been painting still-life pieces directly from life. From a technical perspective this is very beneficial. I can observe the subtle colour and tonal variations that are often lost in photography. I aim to portray the subject just as I see it, beautiful, unassuming, a fleeting moment in time that may look very different just a few hours later.

Below are a few examples of my paintings from the project..
