Day 2 of the 5 Day Painting Challenge:   DO A PAINTING IN 20 MINUTES.

Did the painting study  in 20 minutes using a Knife.   Took another few minutes to ‘tweak it’,  I have always had a problem knowing ‘when to stop’ when working on a painting this Challenge has made me more aware of that!


Winter at the Lake

An Original Acrylic Semi Abstract Knife Painting

This painting is number One and is  part of a Daily Painting Challenge with Artist Mary Gilkerson to paint one painting a day  in thirty minutes (of a local scene) for five days.

I lost my flow as I was interrupted after fifteen minutes into the painting and had to take it up again.   I think it actually took me forty minutes in total.   There were sheep in the field but I didn’t have time to put them in.
