Speed painting, for those who don't know, is a form of digital painting practice in which I have to come up with an image within a set time limit. I usually limit myself to an hour if I want to get anything done. Some people I view on the deviantart website can whip something up in less than 30 minutes. I really envy those guys, and I'm not nearly as awesome as they are - but I'm getting better and that's what matters.
Here, I was trying to see if I could paint trees using the basic principle of shape. If I can, I'll post speed paintings every week, depending on how much time I have.
