If anyone has any creative suggestions for titles or captions for any of these I will add ones I like as the titles and credit and link you here in the description.
I typically work on images with 2000 or more pixels in width and then shrink them down. As I was writing a recent GIMP tutorial [link]
encouraging others to do the same I had the sudden curiosity about what my results would be if I didn't. So I gave myself a 600 pixel wide canvas just to see what would happen.
I feel like I need a lot of regular practice to improve my painting skills but I don't feel I have a ton of time or attention to dedicate to it. So even though I have been getting unsatisfying results I have decided to keep going and I have made a regular practice of doing these micro paintings which are about 320 to 350 pixels in width when completed. Here are my first four. Hopefully I will begin to improve eventually.
