Ten Minute Apples


6"x6" Oil on Panel
with Palette Knife



Another thing about the 30 day challenge is that you get to post work that is finished, unfinished or simply a study. Today's painting is an exercise I learned from Carol Marine. You divide your canvas into fourths. in each square, you paint a simple object in ten minuets. That's it! Just ten minutes and not a stroke more. The process is repeated four times. This was the first time I have ever tried the exercise. I learned a lot from it. You can see the progression with the first apple being the upper left. The last one is the lower right.

I totally get why Monet painted water lilies. There is much to learn from painting this beautiful plant.
