I don’t normally go for internet challenges; what seems like a good idea at the beginning of the month often feels like torture by the end of the month.
But since I’d already made my own challenge to paint regularly during the month of January (barring any offers of full-time employment!), I have decided to participate in Leslie Saeta’s Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days.
Most of my paintings take many hours to complete; I’m slow and I’m fine with that. But I’m also going to try to complete one small painting a day in one hour. Why one hour? I want to figure out how to draw something quickly, make design decisions on the fly, and describe something in color accurately and without over thinking. I want to experiment, and have some fun with paint.
There might be a lot of posting this January. If a painting is ugly, should I still post? Should experiments see the light of the internet? What do you think?
