I'm trying to get motivated. So I set up a still life outside and had a friend (V....) over to lunch with me. We visited and ate al fresco and then I painted the remains of our feast for about an hour. The sun moves surprisingly fast even in that time.
Such a beautiful day here! I thought I'd go outside and play a little. Just wanted to practice brushwork and values.
The sun moved so fast on the first set up that I moved twice to avoid the shadow creeping across.
Probably will just scrape these so I can reuse the boards. The practice is what's important.
