The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust

Quick study number 1

Hey, I did a quick study!  Woo hoo!  LOL. This was 45 minutes.

After this, I also pre-mixed some paint to relieve a little of my time-stress:

The color in the photo isn't very good, but that's a mix of ultramarine blue and cobalt blue, on the left. Then a cool green (ultramarine blue and cadmium yellow light) and a warm green (ultramarine blue and cadmium yellow medium). My thinking is that these will make good bases, and can be easily modified.  Then when I'm done, I just pop it in a sandwich bag and throw it in the freezer until the next time I have an hour to spare.


  1. So, these are acrylics you're putting in cold storage, right? (Just making sure. :-)

  2. Nope! They're oils. And I also added a cotton ball full of clove oil to the bag (thanks, M.A.!) to slow drying even further.
