I joined this great facebook group my co-worker recommended called Daily Spitpaint, where you get a few words each day to prompt you, and then are challenged to speed paint something in 30 minutes. The deadline is strictly enforced. I am not a very fast painter, but I really want to learn how to speed paint. I’ll be posting these to this art blog whenever I make them. Since they are 30 min. speed paints I can’t imagine any of them will be masterpieces but hey, this art blog is more like a diary or sketchbook than a portfolio anyway. My first couple of paintings are more character-centered because that’s what I’m more comfortable with, but in time I want to do more groups of figures and landscapes, to build up those skills.
