February 2024 Challenge.

Our challenge to you is to paint something that is outside your comfort zone and that you’ve never painted before.  It could be a simple household item like a jar of pickles, a pin cushion, a child’s toy or even a tree.  I chose to paint my childhood dress shoes.  I painted mine on a 6 x 8 linen panel.  Give yourself only 30 minutes.   Don’t stress too much about it.  Just have fun.   If we continue to stay in our comfort zone then we lose the opportunity for growth. I filmed my challenge for you so I hope it inspires you to paint.

Let’s see what you can do!  Post your paintings that you are working from either from life or reference in our Facebook Inspired to Paint Students page so we can all be inspired!  We are so excited to see what you are doing!
