10 Minute Challenge

Each week the Daily Paint Works is posting a challenge for artists to help them improve their skills. This is a very cool and wonderful thing they are doing for artists and it's free! I painted last week's old car challenge that I posted here as my painting for last week but this weeks DPW is to paint an object four or more times and each time paint for only 10 minutes. This has been a terrific exercise in simplifying and painting what you see the first time. There is just no time to redo or over work and area. I am posting my attempt at the 10 minute studies of a tomato, in hopes my artist friends will be inspired to try their own studies. I survived to tell you it wasn't so bad! Try it. You can learn a lot about how you paint and what to do to improve. I will be posting later this week another painting as my weekly painting. To see the DPW Challenge web site and to view the other artist's 10 minute studies go here.
