painting under time pressure in front of 100's. gave quite the buzz and adrenaline rush ... ( and did I say a case of a bit of the nerves?)
I painted an 18 x 24 mountain landscape in 20 minutes
and I had trained doing many 18x 24 timed landscape pieces..
upon reflection, it was a great exercise in mapping in shapes, contrasting values, and particularly working on an untoned canvas which was different for me
hmmm, interesting inspiration that came just from laying them out on the floor to dry....
I met some great fellow artists in a familial festive environment. Thanks to Bill Higginson for organizing a great event
