- We have done small 5x7 10 minute studies and these quick paintings allow us to simplify our subjects because we are limited with our time. It is also an excellent way to make use of limited painting times!
- Prepare several pieces of paper in advance so you can work quickly and efficiently. Choose some random reference photos....remember this is a quick process. Sometimes we spend so much time agonizing over what to paint that we don't get much painting time!
- Try this variation: choose one reference photo and then paint several quick studies of the same photo changing something in each painting.
- 5x7 is good but 2.5 x 3.5 is even better! If you really want to simplify and paint quickly try to do some of these minis. Set a timer because you can still get a lot of detail in a tiny painting if you spend enough time!
