Yahoo! 2014 is here with a bang! Started my class "Small Paintings, Big Art" at the Providence Art Club today. What a great group I've got. to get on the same page, we all painted from photos, but we timed ourselves. Painting the same image in 60, 40 and then 25 minutes (I'll save the 15 minute paintings for much later in the class) we tried to 'nail' the compositions, color and brushwork, hoping it got a little easier each time. For many of us the sweet spot was 40 minutes.
I will probably paint this angel statue again, (now that I've done all the 'math').
And yes, believe it or not I painted all 3 from the same photo reference!Pin It
