Small Format Puffins - Day 8 of 30 in 30

Puffins

Sometimes things just don't work out.    I thought I'd try a smaller format today.    Usually I do quarter sheet which ends up being 11"x14" when framed.    This one is 8"x10" which doesn't sound much smaller but felt very cramped.    I was also under the impression that a smaller painting would be quicker to finish but, if anything, the opposite is true.    

So everything ended up a little tight and cramped and stilted.   Not unhappy but not over the moon either.   I'm hoping this 30 day painting challenge throws up some happy accidents soon otherwise it's going to be a rather disappointing month.
