The blog of Ohio artist, Nora Sallows, a compulsive oil painter!

When you challenge yourself to complete a painting within a set time period, you're testing yourself to see how instinctively you can paint. I think this is important, especially when you're painting using the alla prima method. It's also a prerequisite if you're going to paint outdoors, where you need to capture an image in under two hours, due to the changing light. I spent just under 45 minutes capturing this pair.
I like apples. They're paintable, seasonal and best of all, edible. :) There are McIntosh apples. They're delicious.
