9x12 oil on canvas Two with Two
Today I picked up a canvas that had a quick sketch of two flowers in a vase that I had started back in 2011 and just never got back to it. The image was there for inspiration but it just wasn't enough so I quickly set up a plate with a glass to help me a bit with the shapes and shadows. Needless to say, I was quickly in ellipse hell and actually almost decided I needed to name this one "Ellipse Hell". I still do not have them right but I'm moving on as I should and get ready for the next challenge day.
I can only say that doing a challenge like this serves an artist well in several ways. First it forces work! Second it forces speed! And, third it forces acceptance for the good and the bad. I like it and tomorrow I'll keep going.
