twenty minutes daily warm ups

Anne Buckner from Painting Friends did a twenty minutes daily warm up, where you paint anything from life without sketching,  and continue for twenty minutes  only,  then you put your brush down, scan it or take a photo and post it. It was inspired by Catherine Kartwright´s 20 minutes daily warm up.

I cannot thank Anne enough for this interesting project, I truly benefited from tis exercise, I paint without sketching already, and thought it may not add a lot to my skills or work, firstly everyone was surprised by how muc you can achieve intwenty minutes.and  I was proven wrong, this exercise makes you really focus on your subject and observe tones, shapes, shadows and colours in a way different from your usual comfortable zone.
