Diane Mannion, TEN MINUTE CHALLENGE 2012, 10x8" oil
This is a repeat of the Daily Paintworks Challenge which I painted in February, 2011. Each jar is painted in TEN minutes! The difference with this painting is the size of the brush. 2011... #2. 2012...#6! A number two bristle is about a quarter of an inch wide... and a number six is about a half inch. Some jars were painted inside and some outside lighting was, but it's the same little jar I painted last year. And I'll post this one in the Carol Marine's new Ten Minute Challenge Again. Here's last year's version:
Diane Mannion, Ten Minute Jars 2011, 10x8" oil
Great exercise! Took a little longer last year to add the lettering. 2011 is crisper because of the smaller brush, but 2012 is more painterly and less of an illustration.
