These oranges are the result of a challenge posted by that very skilled artist Carol Marine. The goal was to paint eight little studies using only ten minutes for each piece. I was hoping the results would be a lot looser, but you can't change the stripes on the old zebra over night. This was a great exercise, and I hope I learned something from it. Well I know I didn't have enough paint mixed, and did not have the paint thinned to flow more easily...two important factors I believe. That's what you get for not painting for over a month.
