Quick bunnies, 21 x 29.7 cm, acrylic paint and ink on watercolor paper

The other day I did some quick paintings inspired by a lesson by Alena Hennessy. I wasn’t feeling well, but figured just some experimental marks couldn’t hurt. The assignment was to give yourself a maximum time for three quick paintings: 5, 10 and 15 minutes. It’s a great way to experiment with quick marks and how to use new materials from time to time. Not to be result oriented all the time. This one is a 15 minutes painting.

Using acrylic ink is fun, it’s so vibrant. I started out with just color on a wet page. I couldn’t help but bring out flowers and the bunnies.

15 minutes isn’t very long, so no time to be precise. I figured I’d better let them be what they are and not spoil the spontaneous marks. I rather like the funny expressions on their little faces.

    The bunnies and Vibrant colors are great. To have a 15 min deadlines is a great idea for the days wherey you do not have much time!

      Thanks Kathrin. Yes indeed – especially when you have a space to leave it all (that’s on my wish list!) until next time.
