An Invitation to the 30-minute Painting Challenge (failure 1, still life)
On LDahl's site, I saw the 30-minute paininting challenge. The rules are 30 minutes and not one minute more, one layer only, etc. (See Jumbled Drawer.) I thought a still life would be relatively easy, but I was wrong. Note that I am not a real artist. I am a poet and a naturalist. Art is something I am just learning--slowly.
Of these, the first took 30 minutes, the second 50, the third 80 and the 4th 110. (Jumbled Drawer does some incredible stuff in 30 minutes.)
I am having an aspect ratio challenge with my tablet, and these apples etc are narrower than they appear on screen. Does anyone know how to fix that? I tried to fix the aspect ratio problem (last image). But I would prefer them to come out right to begin with.
