We all get into our own comfort zones don’t we? However, comfort and familiarity are not places where growth occurs. If you want to grow, learn and get better as an artist, you need to be bold and try something new. My work is normally very detailed and precise in nature. This takes time to create a painting in this way. I also rarely paint nudes.
So, I thought I would challenge myself this Sunday and try painting a nude, in watercolour (not oil) and importantly…in 12 minutes and not 12 hours!
What do you think? It turned out alright really and I might list it on Artfinder and see what happens. Be bold, be brief…be gone!
I have been playing around with a new idea…I have quite enjoyed doing some pen and wash drawings of PVC and fishnet garments and thought that they might look good in a glossy frame with a glossy mount. This one is a home made effort and just put together for a test. What do you think?
