A big takeaway that I got from CTNX 2013 was the feeling that I need to do more paintings. LOADS more paintings. So here lies my endeavor to bolster my skills. I've been greatly inspired by Nicolas Bouvier AKA: Sparth  and 30 minute paintings so I've decided to try my own timed exercise. I'm limiting my time because I usually get sucked into the details of a painting before finishing the composition. While I'm not yet skilled enough to "complete" a work in 30 minutes. I've limited myself to 60 minutes. My goal in this adventure has been to explore composition, color palette, and PS brush techniques. By no means do I consider any of these "finished" works.
