Latest Daily Alla Prima Oils.
Hiya guys, Can't say as many of these dailies have been turning out as I'd like. Painting them each within a set limited time frame has proven challenging and these latest actually extended beyond the 1h set quite a bit.
Still I think it's really good practice to to try to quickly think of all the variables required for a good compo / painting - hues, temperature, composition, light, hard & soft edge, depth, weight and so much more.
I see these dailies as just sorta sprints to prime my brain to think quickly through the problems that I have already practiced thinking about in longer drawn out artworks though. Done on their own, they would probably have the terrible effect of inculcating a shoddy habit of mindless quick painting.
It's a skill to work methodically with precision while still doing so fast. Setting a time limit for a painting like this should be done purposefully as a side to the real practice of creating art where one has all the time needed to work out and ruminate on all the nuances of a piece. One naturally gets faster at it in time anyway.
Anyways all new dailies (that have survived) are posted on Studies before anywhere else so do drop by if you are interested! :)
