10th Painting

I've come to the end of my second week, so 10 paintings so far. What have I learnt! 1. Decent paint brushes needed. (Bought some, expensive but worth it.) 2. Have the paint already mixed. This means having a good look at the image before...

9th Painting

The shadows on this face are a little disconcerting but in fact in the original photographic image they were even darker. It has a slightly cartoon look about it. Discovering every paint-mark has to be relevant and mistakes are difficult to amend in such a...

8th Painting

Doing a '10 minute' painting has become one of the highlights of my day. How sad is that? Really, I have to concentrate so much with the idea of the stop-watch about to go off at any second....

7th Painting

This painting took about 11 minutes, so much for being strict, but it's amazing what you can achieve in 60 seconds.Don't know that I am actually achieving very much at the moment but I think working quickly is having an affect on my other work....

3rd Paining

This is the third of my extremely quick paintings. It's tempting to keep going after the 10 minutes are up, especially if very obvious items of information are missing. The first 3 paintings are of my young friend Holly , although you won't recognise her...

1st Painting

This is the first of my '10 minute' paintings. Apologies, it's appearing in the wrong place. Technicalities of starting a blog are tricky to begin with but hopefully get ironed out with practice....
