I read Robert Genn's "twice weekly"
newsletter recently and he addressed artist blocks and helping students out of them. He suggested giving youself a 37 minute time limit to finish a painting. Not an easy task but a great exercise to make you focus and make each stroke count. This was my first exercise. No muddling around. This is painted on an 8 x 8" linen panel.
Love this...strong and true! Great painting and loved the post by Robert...Timely for many of us!!ReplyDelete
I read it too. Thanks for the reminder to give it a try. Nice job on an 8x8 in a short time. I think it's a good exercise on a regular basis, block or no block. Kinda like Carol Marine's little 10 minute studies.ReplyDelete
I always admire your ability to paint fast and loose, Carol. You do it so well. Have a wonderful trip to England!ReplyDelete
I think this is beautiful, Carol. Love the color palette; an overall sense of peace because of that silvery background.ReplyDelete
I think this is one of the prettiest
sunflower paintings that I have seen!!!!!
The title is perfect, and I love the colors.ReplyDelete
37 minutes?! I couldn't set up in that much time and I think this still life is awesome. Spontaneous brush strokes are beautiful! :)ReplyDelete
