First try on a speed painting for a web exercice before summer. Only one hour. Obviously I was totaly unable to finish, but it was so rewaeding. Great training.
The subject is a street in the south of Greece, but I'm not sure of the name anymore. ;-)
First speed painting I did earlier this year, just before holidays as you could see ;-) 1 hour and I put the pen down. Hope this may help you to find tour way to Greece someday.
