Day 8

Day 8 of the 30/30 challenge

     I DID set the timer for 30 minutes on this one !  I wasn't able to even start on the background, which is okay, but then again, I have my ground color (underpainting) which I have to make work.....

     I tried to hold down the details, which is VERY difficult for me....

     Looseness comes from SIMPLIFICATION, and the best way to do that, I think, is to squint, squint,squint, until my eyes hurt, in order to reduce shapes down to areas of different value.....

 

     Color is not nearly as important as VALUE.... The color can be anywhere, but the value MUST be right.... funny, but true...

     Well, here it is.  I think I like challenging myself like this.  What about a 20 minute painting? or a 15 minute one.....??
