Picking up on the 10 Minute Challenge, I decided to do a single pear. I really liked the top right hand pear, and tried to replicate it, but I don't think I quite hit it. I do like it though.

Pears :10 Minute Challenge

This is my entry for the 10 Minute Challenge posed by Carol Marine from Daily Paint Works, an online art group of painters that I belong to. In this challenge, we were to pick one subject, set the watch for 10 minutes, and paint 4 each of that subject.  I tried to change it a bit in each. The board I painted on is 6x6" so each of these is 3x3". I tried not to panic, and actually think about what I was painting, shadows, highlights, background, etc.

In the Clouds

The CNE or "Ex" is one of my favourite subjects. I loved the clouds in the reference photo for this, and I did it as a Daily Paintworks Challenge.
