Snow Queen - 30 Minute Study


12x9 oil on paper
$50 + s/h - sold


Getting back into the groove of things today. The dancer here is one of the two snow queens the Austin ballet has performing in their Nutcracker. This was a great way to warm up after a break from painting. Setting a timer makes me see the big picture and not get caught in details. I literally paint for 30 minutes and then its brushes down. I wish I could describe why this exercise works so well for me. I am suffering a little disconnect though between doing and talking about. I will try again tomorrow!

I think this study is very beautiful. In 30 minutes you were able to convey life and movement.

It's fresh, clean, lively and as far as I'm concerned finished. Why would you want to do more?
