Study of a Kiss...or kiss off!
3" x 3" acrylic on wood panel x 12
Some may know what this series is all about while others will be utterly confused and unimpressed at the incomplete work.
This is The Daily Paintworks' Challenge #2 and this time Carol Marine was the culprit. The idea was to pick one object to paint for eight or so 10 minute studies...and not a second more, brushes down. I found this challenge to be an incredibly frustrating dance of two steps forward and three steps back. But I did have my moments. I learned a lot...I discovered that I do not like to be rushed - lol!
Seriously, the objective was for us to become more efficient, to simplify and not get snagged in the details...as in the first study in Round 1. All issues worthy of addressing, no doubt. This may become a ritual with future paintings.
