Speed Painting!

Thursday night a bunch of the girls got together and visited a local art gallery for a fun night of painting with acrylics. For a very reasonable price we were all provided with a large canvas, an easel, an assortment of brushes, an unlimited supply of paint, and a picture of SOMETHING TO PAINT!
Sounds easy right? Now here's the hard part - complete the painting in 2 hours!

We all got busy drawing our bottles (we had a little help in that department) and then went to town! Some of us painted the picture as we saw it, others gave it a whole new look. As time passed it was amazing to see how different each painting was and how talented we all were with a paint brush!


At the end of the class we all had a completed painting and we were very happy with ourselves and the experience. I think we'll all be doing this again in the near future!

Since I was the photographer I did not get a shot of myself working. My completed painting is shown above. The silly picture of me was done at Pikipimp.com - check it out, it's serious fun!

That's funny! It takes me forever to pick out a greeting card, painting something like that in 2 hours is beyond belief!

It's crazy difficult to make glass look like glass. In design school we had to do it with markers. Very hard subject for 2 hour class, I think you did great!
