READY FOR A CHALLENGE?

Katherine Cartwright has a great Twenty Minute Challenge blog now based on her own 20-minute challenge paintings she does while travelling. Take a look - if you really want to push yourself and your editing chops, try it! I think I might...and remember, you can paint small so maybe ATC size or 5 x 7 or similiar size would work...what could we create for this? Your own room, your office, yourself?

Check it out and have fun! And do catch up on Kathy's blog posts for the last few days - they will give you plenty to think about when it comes to your art and your direction!

Thanks for the invite and details of this challenge and info on your wonderful art long day - you lucky girl. As regards Julie's legs, you made a great interpretation of foreshortening. I never bother about facial features when drawing the figure, I leave that to clever portrait artists .. just a bit of shadow and bone structure thats all.

Joan, It should be a fun challenge - and just take 20 minutes of your day :) Now to get myself in gear and do it! ha ha I didn't want to leave her faceless - or childish looking but the legs were my main focus so I guess that's okay. If she returns, I'll work on her face and feet!
