A month ago I challenged myself by painting the same subject 6 times, each taking 10 minutes. They were on this board but only two were even close to interesting… so I painted over everything but the two pumpkins on the right side of this board.
I painted the mango etc. in two ways, simultaneously. More like 50 minutes each. Capturing the right color and value quickly is hard for me to do. I need more practice.
To make this a more interesting cohesive painting I would make something much bigger or smaller. Everything’s too much the same.
