Set up, mixed pigment. Started timer, 35 minutes. Not sure this is the best exercise for me since my tutors are always telling me to slow down :) Diana Moses Botkin did a quiet little challenge for these paintings so I'm gonna give it a shot!

Worked this on a loose piece of canvas, so the horizontal wrinkles may be problematic...but perhaps the Garret Artist can fix it :

November 2010 Challenge: Do a 30 minute painting

Challenge Group member Robin Cheers came up with this painful concept for us and instructed us to: "Set a timer for 30 MINUTES. And start painting!! When the timer dings, chirps, rings, beeps, whatever, you are DONE. Stand back and see what you accomplished! The idea is of course, to get in as much as you can - to mass in, to respond quickly to what you see and not analyze. You can work big or small."

This was an en plein air demo for Thea on 10-10-10 with our little family on a picnic. She was a wonderful observer and so intrigued.
