I just went trough a rush time which is finally over. So I'm back on my blog... finally!
Lately, I've been thinking of new ways to get better and go to the next level as an artist. I named one of my new idea "The 30 mins Painting Project". This is actually not something new but I made a few rules for myself to keep the essence of the exercise. Basically, I'm going to make a painting everyday using a photo as reference. The rules are:
- to make it in 30 minutes or less
- to never use the dropper tool to pick up the colors directly from the picture
- to use just ONE layer
- to keep the picture under 1000 pixels for height and width (which is a lot for some people, I now! But I'm planning on being so good that I'm going to paint every single leaf eventually! :) )
So here it is. I hope this exercise will help me understand colors better and be looser with my paintings. These are the two mains purposes of this self inflected exercise. I'm going to start with landscape and move on to figures eventually.
Here are my first ones from yesterday and today (30 mins each).
Hope everybody is doing well. I'm sorry again if I don't reply to all the comments. I really appreciate them though.
Have a good day everybody!
