Two more Twenty Minute Challenge paintings:
"Candle" (you can tell a lot of thought went into that title ;-) was done last week and "Firs in the Snow" was done this morning.
Candle was simply more practice on the "get in, get it done, get out" philosophy.
Firs in the Snow was a little more specific. In this little exercise I was after accomplishing two goals:
1. Creating a soft, misty background using the wet in wet technique
2. Experimenting with a softer, more subdued palette than I normally use.
I like the softer palette and plan to work on that some more. Doing these TMC's is the perfect opportunity to try out new things, get in some uncomplicated practice... and just have fun painting!
