Painting No. 107, 9x12in, oil on hardboard
This was an exercise that I found on DailyPaintworks. The challenge was to paint an apple multiple times, using only 10 mins. per 'mini painting'. I was really excited to try this, I thought it would be fun and I felt fairly confident since apples are one of my favorite subjects. Well, the battle of Artist vs. Apple didn't quite turn out the way I was expecting, that darn apple kept winning! I literally screamed/groaned each time the timer when off! Ahhhh! The whole point isn't to make you a speed painter, but to help you be more efficient in you methodology and brush work. It will was fun though (while equally frustrating if that seems possible), seeing that it was so different from the norm for me to try something like this. I challenge Apple to a rematch, it won't get the best of me!!!
Welcome to my blog!
I'm on a mission to paint 500 paintings. How long will it take? What will I learn along the way? Join me on the journey and follow my progress!
