I’m thisclose to calling this painting finished, but I need some time to play with the layers a bit without being interrupted by the timer. I want to get it to the stage where I love it, and I’m at the “really really like it” level at the moment. I don’t want to rush through it just because I’m starting a new theme tomorrow, and end up having to revise it down the road. This will be continued next month.
So, this concludes 31 days of 5 minute timed painting experiment. I’m sighing a sigh of relief because even tho I learned so much from doing the experiment, I’m ready for it to be over. The past week hasn’t been all rainbows and lollipops, as you can probably guess from my struggle with the center line of this painting. It felt like things came to a standstill for several days in a row. No progress was made, and I was getting increasingly frustrated with the timer, and having only 5 minutes a day to work on this rather large painting.
My hands are UP in the air for one final time, as if surrendering to the great timer gods up in the sky. Time is up, timer. Adios! It’s been quite an interesting month, but I can’t say I will miss you, and all of your restrictions.
New theme starts tomorrow. I can’t wait to share with you what I’ve picked for January. Eeeeeeeee!!
To recap quickly, here are my progress shots from December..
And here are the two paintings I completed:
