2nd TMC (Twenty Minute Challenge)


I'm learning more in this little 20 minute challenge than I ever dreamed I would!

I wanted a simple subject so I could focus on keeping the colors clean.... and not overworking (the bane of my artistic life). I think I'm at least heading in the right direction.

Have a good weekend!

This is lovely, Teresa! So clean, and I love the soft cast shadow.

I think you're learning a lot also! Are your leaves turning already?

In 20 minutes!? Wow, super work. I love the freshness of this leaf even we know it is the fallen leaf.

Thank you,
Irina

I like so much the number of colors you use here. Plus, the shadows turned out so natural. I start believing in 20min challenges)))

You produced this artwork in just 20 minutes? You have done a wonderful job in capturing the leaf and its lovely colours.

Katherine Thomas said...

Wow! It's perfection! I imagine you would have to really focus on the most important things in just 20 minutes, and that's probably the point of the exercise, right?

It's hard to believe you did this in such a short time. Beautiful colors. well done.

This leaf is beautiful. I agree with hmuxo. It looks a lot more than twenty minutes. You really hit the paper just right. Pat yourself on the back. Quite a winner.

Thank you for following my blog. From what you wrote here about over doing, I have the same tendencies. Hard to know when to stop--but you knew when with this leaf. Congrats.
