The whole painting process takes only a few minutes, mixing the paint takes longer, and the real time goes into stretching the canvas and making the frames, that's the reason I lost interest in painting, too much pre production drudgery.
Maybe you should take up the pointilist style. There, the ratio of pre-production to production is much more in favor of production.
:tongue:
Well the reason would be I am not a pointilist, I am an abstract expressionist, my favourite artist is Morris Louis, an art style started in the 50s by Helen Frankenthaler. Here's Morris' official website;

18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk. I am not a scholar, great meditator, or authority on Buddhism, but Buddhism is something I love from the Bottom of my heart. It has taught me sobriety, morality, peace, and very importantly that my suffering is optional, and doesn't have to run my life. I hope to give back what little I can to the Buddhist community, sincerely former monk John

The two pictures at the top of the page are the turpentine thinned oil paint, you can see I had quite a bit of control over how the paint moved around the canvas. This below is an acrylic paint in water on raw canvas picture, titled Equus, you can see the movement of the paint is less controlled and perhaps more random because of the differing natures of how water flows compared to turpentine.
