Hi Everyone! Iast year I came up with this idea to have a three hour paint challenge for my art club. It was a great success. I got my painting done in 1 hr and 35 minutes and sold it immediately for $ 35. I know, that's not a lot but it sure was fun and I wouldn't ever turn down money.
So this year I am heading up a three hour portrait painting challenge. Boy I feel challenged. And not in a great way.
I don't know how I'm going to pull this one off. It's in December so we all have lot's of time to focus on how we might accomplish this. I know that when painting a quick painting "less is better" also I intend to do a lot of squinting. And maybe I'll even take off my glasses. Oh My!!!
Go to my photos if you will and look at the intense detail in my paintings of people. Sometimes it takes me a year to do a portrait and be satisfied with it.
I'm writing this blog to ask for tips on how to paint a portrait really fast. I'm open to all your ideas please.
I'm going to post my most detailed portraits so you might see what I'm up against
