Over the weekend, I was asked to participate in 50-min speedpainting battles. There were some incredible artist turnouts: Patrick McEvoy, Chris Malidore, Preston Stone, Will O'Brien to name a few. We were given specific topics and a 50-minute time constraint. I had a great time working with interesting styles, different subject matters, and being inspired by other artists and their processes. In my speed paints and in almost every art I make, I prioritize storytelling and mood above painting technique or style. I believe as long as you have a good story to tell, it can be told with just a few lines or shapes.
