100 Days of 5 minutes little cute paintings - student project

Thanks Irina for these super cute classes! Breaking down things I would have spent more time on, into 5 minute classes, brilliant! I like the way this is simple, yet still super pretty! 

2021: re-visiting this challenge, picking 28 of my favorite, all nature inspired, to see if I am getting better at it. Oh and of course I like a challenge. ;-) 

I am not sure I am better, but I am definitely faster! I think last year I took 15 minute on average for each painting, and this year I actually did them in 5 minutes! It was a great challenge for me, to not get stopped by all the details.

Day 21: Tuesday 28 April. Dutch House. I had so much fun painting with this blue color, that I kept going back to details, and did over a half hour, rather than 5 minutes. In the end, I added details with a white Posca pen, and it really makes a difference. I still need to practice straight lines ;-) and proportions, but I am happy with this somewhat short and small painting.
