Carol Marine's new challenge
original oils (4 - 4x3" panels)
If you haven't heard about it yet, Carol Marine has started up a new online challenge. Not sure exactly what the deal-io is, but it looks like she's mixing it up each time. This one was the "10 minute challenge". Paint the same thing 8 times, max. 10 minutes a painting.
So to be right up front, a couple of times I totally forgot to start the timer (really), and a couple of others I just let it beep away while I kept on a paintin'. I did not, however, spend more than 15 minutes on any of them. Can't get much done in that time, really had to wrastle with my 'need to complete'. I was a bit cranky, but definitely got looser each one. By #6 (bottom panel, bottom left) my poor tulip had completely wilted under the heat of the lights and I needed to recharge for the last two (right side of the bottom panel).
Super good learning. Follow the link and give it a go!
