Acrylic on paper
Normally I'm a consummate paint dabbler, fussing and putzing 'til the piece is on the verge of being overworked. There's nothing like an kitchen timer ticking away at your elbow to put that little habit to rest. I used a half inch brush for the study, with one pile of white paint and one pile of black on the palette. I judged the value, mixed it slightly on the palette, then put paint to paper. The study was finished with about fifteen seconds to spare. Admittedly exhilarating, and a wonderful loosening-up exercise.
