100 Days Project

Janet: One alla prima painting, every day for 100 days

I'm going to paint alla prima (i.e. start and finish in one session) every day.

Day 10:

Green teapot

Today I suffered a major crisis of confidence. Yesterday I overworked a painting, made it too complicated and 'got lost' in the composition. It is pouring rain here so I decided to paint a still life - usually they don't inspire me, if I hadn't been enrolled in this project I would have flagged the whole idea, and not painted at all (and possibly given up until the next bout of creativity hit). I am pleased with the result - a simple composition, abstracted and with loose brushstrokes
