30 Paintings in 30 Days - Shell-ing a-Round in acrylics

A few weeks ago I got an e-mail about the new challenge of "30 Paintings in 30 Days" that will take place in September 2015, and after the first experience I had in January I decided that I will go again for it!
I was thinking a few days about the subject/theme to work with for this challenge, and due to the vacation mood and the many shells I was picking up on the beach decided to "Shell a-Round". This time the most important aspect of the challenge for me is not the subject itself (I have painted quite a few shells before), but the medium, as I will switch to acrylics. I haven't used acrylics for a few years now and I am not sure how it will go, but I have a new set of 12 acrylic  tubes (Camel Artists' Acrylic Colour) which I want to try out.
Due to the time restrictions I have this time of the year, I will paint small, mostly ACEO size and post card size and I hope this time I will keep it up with the challenge for all 30 days (in January I only did 21 paintings). I have already got 2 pads of Galeria W&N acrylic paper (140 lb), of 5x7 and 7x10 inches, and hopefully by the end of the challenge I will finish them.
I am really looking forward for this challenge!
