It seems like a few people might be interested in starting these 30 minutes paintings with us. Obviously, everybody is invited!
I started this exercise last week for myself and quickly invited Oliver Chipping and Jason Scanlon to join me. I made a few rules that I think keep the essence of the exercise (which is some kind of "Digital Alla Prima"). I invite you to follow them so that we can compare our paintings knowing that they are done following the same restrictions.
You'll see, this exercise is really addictive!!
Here are the rules:
- use a picture as reference or if you are lucky enough to have a laptop, do it from life.
- make it in 30 minutes or less
- never use the dropper tool to pick up the colors directly from the picture
- use only ONE layer
- keep the picture under 1000 pixels by 1000 pixels (I guess this rule is not that important, the idea is to keep it small)
Have fun and remember: 30 mins, not 32!!! :) It's harder to stop than you think!
I'm excited to see what you guys will come up with.
