Speed Paint 1

This is my first speed paint for the week. We are supposed to paint these from photo refrence. It was done in photoshop using a wacom tablet and worked on for one hour. We could not work under or over an hour. Our BFA teacher Dela Longfish assigned three for this week. I recommend it if you haven't tried it. It will train your eye, increase speed, and develop photoshop painting skills. I tried to get as far as I could before the hour ended. I began with the background color and then blocked in the big shapes. I worked trying to match the color, values, soft and hard edges. It was a lot of fun. Hope to do better next time. I will post the other two when I get them done. (Bottom photo is the refrence)
