Zoomies

The time arrived to try something new with my paintings. I created a series of wildlife works called the Zoomie series. They are 11x15 inches in size and took no more than 20 minutes to do each. They are not highly detailed. They are, as the description says, zoomie - quickly done with a large brush and lots of strong coloured paint. Neither are they pieces to be sold. They were just exciting to do, something I was inspired to try and for no other reason than to have some fun. If you fancy trying to paint or draw it doesn't always have to be about detail and high quality workmanship. Just get out a big brush, a few colours of paint and a large piece of paper and let rip. I can recommend it.

I echo what Bonnie said. 20 minutes? That is remarkable. These are really great and I have to say...I think they are talking to me and saying....Etsy!

Oh I love them, especially the bunny. I can't believe they only took 20 minutes to create! I could never manage that sort of detail in that timeframe. You are so good! ;-))
