Blueberries, Art and Life has been doing some remarkable paintings in 20 minutes or less. I'm a slow painter so I've been trying these exercises to try to speed up at least some.
The idea is to paint as quickly as possible and still retain the quality you want your finished piece to have. That means deleting unnecessary elements and keeping the important ones. It means making every stroke count.
