Speed Painting and Painting Over, Day #5

Back in molasses again, but made a very deliberate effort to touch all bullet points in the lesson instructions.

Felt kinda awkward and stiff.

Hope to turn the job over to intuition and flow soon.

Took this start,


moved it along,


ended up here.

speed paint and paint over #5, 9x12"

    1. Connie, thanks for your feedback—vibrant and melodic: great words! This painting is nothing I would likely have painted on my own without the impetus of the class I'm taking, but it did end up singing to me in a lively way : )

    1. Thank you, Sheila. Playful is the name of the game, don'tcha think? I like the blend of scribbles and slightly more deliberate marks in this piece—all part of playing and discovering.

    1. Carol, thanks. Appreciate your nod to my showing the progressions. I post them both for my own record and because I love seeing progressions in others' posts. Glad to be bringing smiles : )

  4. Hi Dotty!
    This looks really good! I really think these assigments of Jane can help us very much. I was not so sure last week, but this week feels better ;-)

    1. Hi Simone, thanks for your input. This particular piece felt sort of methodical and assignment-driven as I made it (because, in fact, I wanted to follow the assignment carefully!), but it ended up being bright and fun—nothing I would have come up with without the assignment/lesson. Then, every piece after that has become more intuitive. I can tell I'm learning quite a bit with these assignments.
