Speed Painting and Painting Over, Day #6

Working one idea over and over? I'm seein' the gifts!

Plus, being in this class (my first online interactive class) reminds me of my high intensity interval training classes at the Y. Having an instructor who gives me directions and pushes me to do way more than I'd do on my own, plus having classmates who are working/playing hard at the same time—can't beat the combo for accountability and benefit.

I started to find some voice and flow today.

Way cool.

I've created a second series of three paintings whose starts all used the same color palette. In each I've

• used paints of varying opacities,
• created varying opacities by lifting paint, mixing paints, using glazing medium, or scraping back,
• covered most of the original speed start, and
• left part of the start completely uncovered.

  3. These are marvelous! The development is amazing. Do you think the course would be suitable for oils? A little out of my finances,but from what you are doing and developing worth the investment.

    1. Carol, thanks for your accolades!

      Suitable for oils? I've never worked in oils, so can't fully advise you, but the class is fast-paced and intense. Doesn't sound like oils to me. However, just email Jane Davies and ask.
