This was a quick painting.  In addition to pushing to my artistic abilities for brushwork, speed has emerged as one of my artistic development goals on 2009. 

As anyone who is familiar with the atelier method of  instruction can attest, it tends to be very methodical, but also very slow.  My challenge to myself is to try and keep and improve my drawing and accuracy while I’m painting, but also add an element of time.  I am attempting to walk the line between rushing, and working with a sense of urgency and drive.
