I undertook a short painting challenge a few weeks ago. It was a 5 day landscape challenge with 3 pretty simple rules:
- palette knife
- 20 minutes
My goals were twofold; to speed up for plein air this summer and to make a daily habit of going to the studio and painting. The little quickie paintings I did were loose, messy, fun compositional studies. Best of all, though, is I am feeling a little tug from the direction of the studio.
