The Benefits of Painting Studies


While preparing for my recent abstract landscape workshops I decided to do a bunch of small paintings on paper to show my students various techniques and compositional styles.  I really discovered the benefits of painting several studies in succession.

  • Safe – not a big commitment

  • It allows us to explore composition

  • The freedom to try new and different colour palettes

  • Try different techniques and tools

  • Improves painting skills by working quickly

  • Can be done when we don’t have a lot of time to paint

  • Ideas for future paintings

  • Discovering new techniques
