Material Studies

I painted a few metal studies to help me along with my current WIP. Material studies are so helpful! 

I find taking breaks to do studies to be a really good way to propel a new painting along, especially if it involves a bunch of elements you have never painted before.

21 Days To Be A Better Artist

So there's a challenge going around, prompted by Noah's article (link here) and the idea is you put aside time each day for 21 days, to practice your art.

Here's some studies I've done for my first three days! I'd love to see yours. Post them on Facebook or Twitter with the #21Days hash tag!
