Day 14 of the 30 Day Challenge – Thrift Store Treasures

Browsed through the thrift store yesterday and found myself some pieces to use in my still life paintings. When I got home and was thinking about what to do with for a daily painting, I decided that there was no time like the present to break my new pieces in. So I did a group portrait of the three pieces.

One thing I did today that was a bit different was set a timer for one hour. It was sitting right next to my easel so it was hard to escape it. I am going to break this habit of overworking my brush strokes if it kills me. So, this is a speed painting. And though I don’t think it is my best work, I am actually quite pleased with it in a lot of ways.

    What a good idea! I think I need to try setting a timer, too.
    You did a nice job on this, especially on the red fabric which looks soft and drapes nicely.


  2. Great job on this one … and only 5″ x 7″ . Looks much larger
    Like Fay said you did a wonderful job on the fabric. I like everything about this one. Way to go Dave!
