This is so exiting, I am doing a 5 day challenge and I am already on my fourth day. The challenge is to paint a small painting in 20 minutes and then stop when the bell rings, that is the most difficult thing but I am getting better at it! I will show you how I am going so far. Last day tomorrow! I decided to paint Heimaklett today and I did it in 20 minuets.
This was another challenge from DPW which I could not resist. I used a Staedtler 0.05 on a A5 110gsm sketching paper. I am challenging me to work fast and did this in 20 minutes which is really fast for me.
I was drawn to do a quick sketch of this islander, I saw a picture of him in our local paper. He was very happy with my work and has already put it in a frame. Drawn on a 110gsm A5 sketching book.
