Ten Minute Study-Pepper by Sheri Jones


Ten Minute Study-Pepper by Sheri Jones
8 x 16 oil on Raymar panel.
This was inspired by a challenge posted on Daily Paint Works. This week's challenge was posted by Carol Marine. The rules were to divide your canvas into squares and do 10 minute studies. Set a timer and stick to 10 minutes. This is a great exercise and forces you to make quick decisions. You learn to make efficient strokes. Next time I will make sure and have plenty of paint mixed up. I can see doing more of these they were such fun. This painting is available for purchase. $150.00

Very good, I've thought about trying this but am afraid I'd cheat.

I'd really like to try this with my sketchbook. I like the idea of limiting my time...seems fun!

It is tempting to go back in it, but for now I will leave it be. It is a good exercise I recommend.

You took on a hard subject for a 10 minute painting, well done!

Somehow fruits take on a sculptured design that makes for great subjects. The smooth roundness and reflections are captured in the painting while your strokes dance on the canvas/board like notes on a sheet of music. When I shop at the grocers, I have a propensity to especially touch the bells and look for the right sculptured shapes that will adorn my counter and bring joy and excitment to my dishes. For me, you have captured those feelings very well.
