One Day Paintings are back!

Ok, so I'm not painting from memory anymore! But I'm still trying to keep it small, simple and more importantly, finished in one sitting. Like I said before, I got very sick last week, so I was forced to stop working on this one and finish it later in the week. I am going to try very hard not to sit on these for too long, though. I still want to retain some spontaneity!

I also upgraded to higher quality boards. I'm going to need some time to get used to their qualities, but overall I'm very pleased with them. They are very absorbent and somewhat unforgiving when it comes to erasing lines, but I've always loved to work on hard surfaces. They are very durable and incredibly smooth.

So far, I've only used wooden surfaces on very large paintings. I'm now wondering why I waited so long to use these for my smaller works. Even though I love these new boards, I don't think I'll ever stop using regular canvas, especially the gallery wrapped ones. I love to keep painting all the way to the edges!

These little paintings will allow me to get in shape for the bigger, more realistic ones (which I'm still drawing!)... So far, the deadline seems unrealistic and borderline impossible! These will also represent a more affordable option for those interested in purchasing some of my work. I have added an eBay widget to the blog so you can always check what I have available.

Now, let's see how long it takes me to post the next painting!
