Practice in Repetition

A few days ago I pushed myself to paint as much as I can in one day. Something repetitive but every time trying different color schemes and compositions.

Doing something over and over again is a great way to master the used technique or really learn the subject matter.
One of the more famous examples of repetition was Van Gogh's haystacks. He painted them in different time of the day, different weathers, different seasons, different compositions and slight change in styles.

For me it was interesting to feel my imagination stretch, visualize what the end result might be while just picking the colors, and of course sense of accomplishment for doing so much in so little time.
I feel I'm getting better at achieving the playfulness of the brush strokes that I want, and I now have ideas that can be used for bigger pieces.

All these pieces named Star Dusts, they are letter size (8.5x11” / 22x28 cm) on thick paper, and are available for purchase for only 50 USD (shipping included).
If you are interested, you can message me here or on Facebook.

Happy Holidays! :)
