Day 7: Qualifying Time

One of the challenges I have set myself for this year is to experiment (and hopefully have some successes) with painting more dynamic images. Paintings have the ability to create wonderful atmosphere. I started on this path by painting landscapes which had a sense of great scale and stillness.

Now it’s time to work on capturing a sense of speed. I started this theme by painting a skier in motion which I finished just before the end of the year. Race cars are my second speed subject and I have a few other paintings in the queue which will have a similar energy.

This is the 7th painting in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge.

    1. It’s really just my low boredom threshold, Judith. The down side is that I probably don’t get to really know a subject as well as I could. But it is all about having fun so I don’t worry about that too much.

    1. It was the most interesting part to paint. Really enjoying this speed challenge I’ve set myself. Lots of ideas buzzing round my head.
