I did this in a class I'm taking at Plaza Art. It's just a 2 hour session that runs for 8 weeks. So I complete the paintings fairly fast. I'm working on painting looser, not getting bogged down and overworking. Painting fast forces me to make every stroke count. I think about where I want the lights and darks. The teacher sets up the still life which is good. Sometimes I agonize over what to set up and then I don't paint. I keep telling myself- It's not what you paint but that you PAINT. Practice, practice, practice.
