So Wednesday I set my timer and painted this scene in 30 minutes (plus 10). I wanted it to be loose and interpretive, so I stuck with a sort of split complementary (?) color scheme. Actually - that was a happy accident. LOL
Anyway, I did a few strokes after the timer went off, but not much. I really want to get to the point where I stop tightening up everything and paint more instinctively. I made a short slideshow of the work in progress. One of these days I would like to try to get a video too - first I'll have to figure out how much time my old camera can record and then how to get it uploaded to my computer.

Happy Easter! I'm going to go see the Impressionists exhibit from the National Gallery in Houston. Have a beautiful weekend everybody.
