Speedy Painting: Is this a Challenge?

This is my first time when I try The Twenty Minute Challenge http://twentyminutechallenge.blogspot.com/ . I was pleasantly surprised that it was indeed challenge for me. I have been painting pretty much all my life for more than 30 years and (what a shock!) this one was not easy. I guess when you paint and time yourself you really need to pick your battles. I was debating to put more water or not, to use several shades of blue or just couple; to pick one color for shadows or make them diversified.
The painting is in watercolor, size 8 x 10″. The subject I chose is the Pacific Ocean Shore near Monterey California.
I can’t wait to try more challenges :).

  1. Dear Irina,
    Great!! You made it! I cannot make landscape in 20 and am practicing it. Agghhhaa~~~?!?!!
    Regarding people, I make it in a few minutes(Imagine in a busy train cart or kids moving around etc, etc). No spare time to think. Otherwise subjects are gone. It's much like thrilling hunting! A great fun. Always people talk to me and share joy.
    Cheers, wink, wink,
    Sadami
