    10 min Paintings Thread

    I came across a fellow on uTube who was doing a painting while blindfolded. He said it would cut the ties that were tugging at you while you painted which caused stress that effected your paintings. This would free you up!! He thought his painting was great. A matter of opinion. As you can imagine it was quite abstract. Someone commented that his paintings looked like a 2 year old did them. The painter considered this a great complement because a 2 year old has no notion of whether it's good or bad. And, I can agree with that. It would have been much worse if it would have been like a 6 year old's.

    I thought what a great idea. But it would not be easy to do in artrage, especially if you use colors because it would be hard to pick them and anything else you try to do. With a tablet maybe one could use a pencil or crayon and turn off the monitor or make the screen black or even turn your back to achieve the same sort of thing. That might just work.

    I thought maybe if you set a very short time limit It might be a way to not worry about what you painted. So that's what I have done. Actually some of them took a little longer than 10 mins but it was still my goal at least. I do like this experiment and I think it might work. Actually this might put pressure on you doing it so fast that I don't know it this would accomplish the desired stress-free-effect either. Also a hard part is coming up with an idea of what to paint which the blindfolded chap didn't worry about.
    I suppose this is actually speed painting although I do not know the exact definition of that is. 10 min is an arbitrary time period of my choosing, it could have been more or less.

    Wow!!!!
    The 3 sketches are amazing, not only for the time spent on them, but also the richness of the color palette.

    Hidden Flowers

    I have decided to include these in one thread instead of separate because they are related.
    This one is an abstract done in 10 min or less. I used a Split Complementary Color scheme on this one.

    Up on the hill again.

    This Started as a 10 min one but turned into a 1/2 hr project. I did have good intentions though.
