20 minute studies







Class on Wednesday consisted of working on our large abstracts
or doing timed 20 minute studies.
The first study I did I worked on mark making.
The second study I painted a bird's nest with no thought to color, only value.
And time.
The result was so free.
That's what 20 minutes will do for you.

  5. Beautiful nest Helen--and a great example of what I often tell my students.
    Sometimes fast, loose, and free is the best approach. I hope you feel better soon!
    Cheers, Aimee
