I recently shared how using a kitchen timer changed the way I work on OutdoorPainter.com. My quick start method helped me to more quickly be in the zone and capture my first impression before it got away.
A few fun things happen when working in this way too. Because I'm in a bit of a rush, I don't overmix the paint on the palette and end up with variety in color and brushstrokes on the painting. The mix of washes, drips and scumbled texture helps keep me from getting too tight later on. Its a great exercise and I encourage you to play with the idea - read my "how to" on Outdoorpainter.com.
