HART Speed Painting – Take 006 – Cloudy Day

Filed under: HART's Thoughts — HART @ 6:27 am

This was my sixth speed painting attempt!

I was excited at first, because I put a “Shout Out” to my facebook friends a ‘readers’ choice’ offer, where I would paint the first image a reader might suggest to me. Sadly, I either have no friends, no one saw the post on my facebook wall and their timeline, or nobody could think of something for me to paint 🙁

I do feel that I am quite weak on painting clouds and trees – so, I flipped a coin and decided to do a painting of clouds!

My Reflections Of “Cloudy Day” Painting”

Okay okay okay .. I admit it .. I need more practice on painting clouds 🙂 I know what I started to paint didn’t really look like clouds, but I think I eventually got there, in my style of painting! The bottom brown things at the edge of the wheat field (or whatever you think that is lol) was supposed to be a row of trees in the distance, but as I was painting them, I decided they should be some sort of barbed wire fencing!

Also, whenever I look at clouds I can see some sort of image in there, if I squint long enough. I tried squinting while I was finishing off this painting and (call HART crazy) tried to insert THREE (3) faces inside the clouds! Do you see them? [HINT: you can only see one on the scanned picture as two are cut off near the top]

Because this was a much larger canvas, (14″x18″) it took me longer to speed paint this picture. In fact, it took me exactly 49min:53sec to complete! To speed it down to a reasonable time on YouTube I sped it up three times or rather 8x’s normal speed ((normalx2)x2)x2) and hope you enjoy this.

Here’s What I Painted!

I painted it on the only remaining 14″x18″ canvas I had. Unfortunately, my Brothers MVC-6490CW all-in-one printer/scanner could max out at 11″x17″ so the scan isn’t complete. It is missing about 3″ off the top and about 1″ off the right side. I took a camera picture of the full image, but as you can see the scan image is much brighter and more realistic of the colours you see if in person.
