Only an Hour!

6 x 6 Oil on Canvas Board
This little guy was painted in one hour! I totally surprised myself. After a day of lecture, watching both Karin Jurick & Carol Marine demo we had about an hour to paint a small "Daily Painting". We were all in the "zone" after all that inspiration!

Value Study Workshop with Carol Marine & Karin Jurick

6 x 6 Oil on Canvas Board
One of the most valuable exercise that we did at workshop with Karin Jurick & Carol Marine was this exercise where we did three small painting with only Burnt Umber, one we had 40 minutes to complete, one we had 15 minutes and last one was only 5 minutes. Can you pick which is which? I'll post the answer tomorrow.
As I have read many many times in various art books, if you get the value right the color doesn't matter! Well what do you think.
