March challenge so far


The other day I mentioned my March challenge, to paint every weekday of the month, be it half an hour or three hours. Sticking to it has been more or less easy (last Friday was a challenge, I must admit) and the increased productivity is surprising. I mean, how surprising can it be? I´m painting more often, more canvases come out of it. Quite predictable, but still surprising to actually see it.

My first canvas is almost ready and it was something new: I tried portraits for the first time. I was a bit nervous about it, since there´s always a temptation to comparing with the depicted person, but I´m glad I tried my hand at it. I´m definitely going for more, as soon as I finish this one.

Have you set any challenges for yourself? Do you have any strategies to tackle the task when you really feel like doing something else?
