GFA 30-minute Painting Challenge

Join us in this exercise by quickly painting the photo (or other inspiration) of your choice.  Do all the prep work – choose your photo and pre-mix your paints – then set the timer, paint with abandon and have fun!

if you do more than one painting, consider painting the same photo several times cropping it differently and or using different color schemes each time or paint from different photos each time.
