I was ready to paint this little fairy one morning and realized that I didn't have a canvas available in the size I wanted, so just decided to paint her on a piece of my black Canson pastel paper. I think the dark background really sparks up her vibrant colors.
These may be bought as a set or individually for $35.00 each. The money from the sale will go to Feed the Children Challenge on the Daily Paintworks site after this weekly challenge ends next Saturday.
These pumpkins are the second 10 minute challenge from Carol Marine. The object is to paint one still life object 8 times. Each time you do it you are allowed 10 minutes to paint the subject. When your timer rings, you must stop. As you can see from my pumpkins, each time you paint it, you have made decisions about what you want to accomplish or change in each one. I started quite large and ended large. I changed some colors along the way, too. By the end I pretty much knew what I wanted to say. Does this mean I must paint everything 8 times before I get a satisfactory painting?? No, it means though that I should paint as much as possible and really analyze my still life for its' shapes, colors and values before I jump into the painting. I mixed my pools of color before I started the timer so that I wouldn't waste time experimenting.
10"H x 8"W Original Oil from part of cropped photo by Layne Cook
for the Daily Paintworks Challenge for the week of October 9-15.
In this challenge we were to pick part of the photo from Layne and make our own composition.
Here is whole photo.
When I enlarged it to see it better, I saw this beautiful carved wooden and massive doorway at the top of the stairs. It is draped with a canopy and side panels in lush fabric. I was attracted the the doorway and curved stonework over the door as well as the light on the side of the building leading up to the entry. To me it is in an Italian city. So I am calling it "Enter Here, Please" in Italian. The translation is from the Yahoo Babel Fish site.
I finally got around to having someone take a picture of my hands, yesterday, while I was twiddling. Today I got the painting done, instead of just sitting around twiddling my thumbs. When I am sitting waiting for a train with 189 cars to pass, I twiddle. When I am in a lecture situation and am not supposed to participate or ask questions, I twiddle. My daughter said I am the only one she has even seen do the twiddle!
