#17 Kristin, geode in 20 minutes

watercolor and pen
I was pressed for time the other day, but I still wanted to set apart a little time to draw, so I tried the 20 minute challenge many people have been doing. It was fun to pick an object (this geode we found a couple years ago that sits on the porch railing and I often think of drawing) and do a quick "gesture" painting, to focus on its essence more than the details. It was also fun to put it down and say time's up!

Twenty minutes can work wonders! You made a simple object seem so interesting.

Nice, I like the spot of color in it also.

Nice work, Kristin- I like the sketchbook look with just enough detail.

I think the pen work really adds to this one. Very nice.

I think "just enough detail" sums this up. Nicely done!
