10 Minute Challenge "Strawberry x 4"

"Strawberry x 4"
6 x6 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Today I took on a "challenge" sponsored by Daily Paintworks.
 The challenge was to set a timer and paint one object in 10 minutes. Then do it again, for a total of 4 times. I picked a strawberry . It was more fun and less daunting then I might have thought to keep your painting time to 10 minutes. It does force you to be selective and only get in what's most important. Could be a good warm up exercise on a regular basis.

  1. What a great exercise... I love the strawberry seen 4 different ways. Very cool!

  2. Thanks - It was fun and I'd definitely like to try a few more. The time limit encourages you to edit and simplify.
