One goal of mine has been to speed up the pace at which I work without compromising the quality of my work. This past summer and fall I decided to do some timed drawings to help me work faster. This first one is a 30-minute study I did of tomatoes in soft pastel. Once I applied a color I tried to just leave it, and not go back and overwork it. It was incredibly fun to work like this, and I highly recommend it.
