If you don't know what a little gem is, it's what I refer to as any small painting--small being 36 square inches (about 232 square centimeters) or less.
I'll tell you why I like little gems. They make you:
- immediately decide the most important things about your painting (composition, viewpoint, focal point)
- paint small, almost miniature, which means you naturally leave out all but the most necessary details
- control your painting world in a very confined space
- paint rather quickly because you can fill up the space with a few brushstrokes
Today's image is only 5 x 7 in (12.7 x 17.7 cm) and was completed in way less than one hour.
I hope you enjoy my work.
