|A collage of 4 individual paintings in acrylic|
There are many ways to approach painting, many rules and ideas. But there is only one rule I follow, make it fun! Ok, really two, paint often. Some days I need a little push, or should I say a bit of a challenge. On Daily Paint Works web site they have weekly challenges that are fun to drop in on.
Today I picked the 10minute challenge to warm up with. (Oh no forgot rule three, warm up before painting anything serious.)
I picked 4 acrylic colors, white, and gold fluid Dick Blick brand, and teal, and moonglow (dark violet) from Daniel Smith. Then spread out 4 sheets of black canvas paper Fredix canvas, and pick a little wood deer as my subject. I then set a time for 10 minutes and started painted, giving my self a about 2 and a half minutes per sheet.
Half way through I did move and turn my deer to continue on for the last couple.
One more challenge from yesterday, "Clouds"
