These little paintings are great to do as "warm-ups"..a way
to get lots of color down and be loose. As artists we don't
practice enough and always want to sit down (or stand up)
at the easel (or table, or floor..or...) and create that masterpiece.
Not that there is anything wrong with that...but having a fair
share of "exercises", "bloopers" and "flops" makes us who we are
and when those paintings finally do come out as masterpieces we
should thank our "stepping stones".
