5 Day Painting Challenge: Day 1

Painting of a cello player

The ART+WORK+LIVING Facebook Group is holding a 5 Day Painting Challenge this week. Today was Day 1.

The goal is to paint each day for 20 – 30 mins. We were given leniency for this first day, and I took advantage of that. Started aiming for 30 mins, but needed more time. It’s been a long time away from the easel… Things became more familiar by the end.

The goal is to learn to paint quickly and confidently, and to paint every day and establish a new pattern of practice. The goal is NOT to paint a great painting–just to paint. 

I’m grateful for the challenge.
