I like to paint "little gems" when I am in between working on larger paintings or paintings that take several passes or days to complete. To me it's like cleansing your palette between tastings except in this case I'm referring to a paint palette.
Painting small paintings gives me a new perspective, and since they can be completed in hours or even minutes, you can use them to try out new subjects or techniques or practice value studies or whatever. I get inspired.
Today's "little gem" is an extremely simple still life of seasonal fare with an autumn/all-hallow's- eve motif.
I hope you'll be inspired to paint your own "little gem."
