Today's class at the Art Club was a lesson on getting it GOING~! For a lot of artists, doing a small paining, soup-to-nuts, in an hours is UGH.... impossible. Well, this painting was done in 15 minutes. (I am getting a supreme kick out of the fact that I simply FORGOT to put the string on the tea tag!) Every single person in the class did a great job on a 15 minute painting. Below you'll see the first painting of the afternoon - done in just over an hour. To the right, the same subject, done in 40 minutes.
Truly, when I was doing the first one, the hour-long study, I was silently thinking to myself "WHAT were you thinking with this drippy/lopsidedly glazed mug, a teabag package, and a tag???? But you know... when you are under the gun, so to speak..... And here I want to say all the students were very accomplished!
