One hour


I gave myself one hour to create a painting. I listened to a podcast that Carol Marine, a daily painter, did with Melissa from Thriving Artist's Project and felt inspired. Her story is great.  I did this while my daughter was up and playing. I used acrylagouache on a Ampersand board. I had a lot of fun. Giving yourself a time limit is great! It forces you to work fast and not over think everything. I know my bottle is wobbly and shadows aren't really right but I still really like this little painting. My daughter is napping now. I am off to try another one. See you soon. Don't for get to enter to win a spot in Creativity Bootcamp! There is just a couple more days to enter.

This is something I've been trying to do lately -- short time deadlines. Often, I like the outcomes as much as the ones I struggle for days to complete. I always learn something new when I have less time to work.

Great job!!!

what a FABULOUS idea to have a time limit. I think you are right that it can push you to just RESPOND to the work and not come up with a 'right' kind of painting. I REALLY LOVE how it came out.
