Painting Challenge: 100 BAD PAINTINGS

I read a couple of months ago about a challenge that a teacher did with his art students called "100 bad paintings" this challenge consisted in painting and painting without thinking too much about the results. Of course you know that the point is to learn in the process and maybe by the 20th painting we become quite good. I really loved this challenge because it helps not worrying about been perfect but also to keep the creativity in motion even when there are days that we just don't feel quite so. It is important to follow you intuition, your heart and get into the zone. I challenge my friend Miriam and now we are both doing it - Join us! Here are Painting #1 and Painting #2

Rules: there are no rules. you can paint in a canvas, sketchbook - anything! just keep painting!

Hace un par de meses encontre un blog que hablaba sobre un desafio que un profesor de arte propuso a sus estudiantes: crear "100 pinturas malas" la idea es de continuar pintando sea en un lienzo a en una bitacora sin pensar mucho en el resultado. Obviamente el aprendizaje es que la constancia en la pintura es importante para seguir creciendo y quizas para la 20va ya haya uno hecho una gran pintura. Es importante que al pintar uno se guie por su intuicion y el corazon. Me encanto este desafio! Aqui van mis primeras dos. Unete a este desafio!!

What a fabulous project idea. I agree that it's always about how we approach things... it's hard to be a beginner at times... forging into new territory!

BTW, your paintings look fab!
