Leftover paint speed study

I used the leftover paints on my palette and I ran out of paint midstream. I didn't want to squeeze new paints (until tomorrow). Well, I like doing studies/sketches like this..there is no big investment, except for just a little time. I think the guy came out looking some like either Tony Perkins or George Broderick.

I always use my leftover paint for after studies. Sometimes I put more on the palette just because.

I love this! I'm always a sucker for paintings with musical instruments in them. Nice work!

I have been putting my leftover paint (on the palette) in the freezer! The next day, I take it out, defrost for about 10 minutes, and then paint. Seems to work for me.

It does look a bit like George!
Speed painting always reminds me of the song "The flight of the bumblebee" A fast painting song indeedie do!

I see Tony Perkins in this beautiful speed painting. I appreciate your not mentioning that you did it in something like 15 minutes. You are inspiring.
