20 For 20 Art Challenge 2024

This art challenge started on January 1, 2024, and ended January 20, 2024. The premise was to make a daily piece of art each day, working quickly for 20 minutes a day. (or thereabouts). Going over that time limit was fine, but the goal was to try and get the piece done in 20 minutes or less.

My theme was primitive, abstract chairs painted with acrylic paints, two complementary colors, plus black and white.

All of these chair paintings were completed in less than an hour and were painted on 5″ x 5″ square pieces of 300# watercolor paper. The Arches and Fabriano paper are from previous paintings I made, and the squares were hand-torn, giving them all deckled edges. I applied black gesso over parts of the old paintings and used Posca markers to sketch the chairs before painting them.
