Landscape Study 1

Landscape Study 1
8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

This was a study I did in class yesterday. The challenge was that we had a timer set to go off  after only 30 minutes.  Given the time constraint, you really had to go for what's important, the big shapes and values first. Good exercise in prioritizing and not fussing over details, but I'm glad I don't paint with a deadline every day.  it was a bit nerve wracking, especially hearing the ticking! My instructor's suggestion was that this was a good way to approach paintings to do a small study first to see if it even had potential to go larger before investing a lot of time and supplies in something that didn't have a lot of potential.
