Bean Pot with Pens and Brushes

With this little painting my goal was to paint as fast as I possibly could. My brush was flying and I found that soft edges came easily by painting fast and with thick paint. Strangely enough the colors and the 'feel' of the painting seemed truer in this speedy painting than some paintings in which I've carefully striven to capture the exact color of the light. Funny how painting fast can really shake things up, in a good way.

There's such a sense of immediacy here. I love the feeling that I'm wandering by a work in progress. And yes, the light is sensational.

Oh, I always love the spontaneity of an impulsive/quick stroke(and then left untouched!) Just like your lovely painting here.
The biggest challenge for me is to stay away from it then. I feel sort of guilty for not working on it long, and then I think I have to just touch up here or there.....feels like a good piece of art needs to be "worked" on for days...

Nice painting, Cindy. The brush strokes are wonderful and I like the subject. Confidence and energy come through. I really like it!

Thanks Ronell, Linda,

Painting fast with a time limit really helps but you end up with a lot of dogs that way.
