Welcome back Pampe!
It took me a while to recognise the glove to be honest but then I am no golfer! Your texture on the balls in wonderful!

Looking good: wood, glove, scorecard, balls, T[?]
I don't no nothing bout shadows, but the projection of the club handle don't seem to belong there.
Nice to see your smiling face and *massive hips*

This is another good painting.

Love your choice of colors.

A new Pam painting :D

Not a golfer, but will say what I see :)

Golf balls look very good, great texture on background,

think metal club head could use more indication that it is metal, reflections of golf balls I can see but maybe more dark reflections of surroundings and highlights are needed?

Not sure about shadow from club handle, seems light on gloves then extremely dark and too narrow on floor.

Nice detail with scorecard :)

Should think this subject would have good market?

Hi Pam,

I like this a lot. The colors and the way they flow into one another are very nice, especially on the boards of the wall (or fence) that the club is leaning on.

The shadows seem a little dark and sharp, but that is a minor nit. Overall, I think this should do quite well with the golfing community.

Great colors. Interesting viewpoint.

I am having trouble "reading" some of the objects. Is the glove on top of a score card? Is that a ball marker that looks like it is coming out of the top of the ball?

I'm not going to let my husband see it either or I'll be painting golfing equipment before I know it. Ed, both sons, and my grandson all play--so, that would make 4 or should I say "fore?" Sorry:o

Glad to see you back painting!

Looks like one of those metal woods! (only in golf can you call it a metal wood lol!)

I am drawn to art:)

Welcome back Pam missed you! This looks great to me. The glove could use a tad more color I think.

1. I can tell what's on your mind Pam.
2. I knew it wouldn't be long before we saw a pampe painting
3. It's sunny:D :D :D

4. Don't know the first thing about golf, but it tells the story and I like it!!!! The only nit I have is, I think the back wall could do with another coat of something.

Ruth, metal is non-reflective in a golf club.....:eek:

thanks, syl

lyn, no marker...I'll post a better photo today

thanks, Bill

Irene....the glove pains me greatly!

Usch...afraid it will take away from the center of interest...but you may be right

close up

Pam, I meant to subdue the two vertical red stripes that draw your eye.

05-01-2003, 12:15 PM

In the photograph, I can see that what I thought was a ball marker was part of the scorecard--I think my eyes are going! along with everything else! ROFLOL

The composition is excellent.

I like the cropped version better.

05-01-2003, 12:29 PM
Nice to have you back, Pam.

Not a golf person either... but I understand the game a bit... par, birdie all those stuff. (learnt from computer games, lol)

OK, back to your painting... Interesting subject and composition..... should paint more and sell at clubhouse, driving range, etc.

I think you need more DARKS on the left side of the club to make it rounder. Golf balls look great... had a hard time telling it's glove too. Need more darks for shadow casted by glove on the scorecard to make card looked under the glove.

05-01-2003, 12:51 PM
Allright ....more good golf stuff.
Got my gin and tonic (first of the day) and I'm ready.
Glad you cropped that...looked like blood on the back wall. Thought somebody might have been hit by the guy in MKathleen's painting from Arizona....
How come the club in the photo is clean but there is rust on the one in the painting?
You seem to have picked a really hard arrangement to paint. What I mean is this. Would anyone leave a scorecard,two balls and a glove stacked so neatly beside their club on the floor?
Obviously you had no trouble painting this, since you have accurately painted what you saw...except for the back wall (lol).
I think the subject matter is great...I can see a
really great painting of just the glove, scorecard, three balls and maybe some white tees, all sidelit with some dramatic shadows.
Don't call it "Priceless"!
If you don't, I will.....
Will post another golf thing...your turn to critique.
Maybe we could start a new category..Wet Canvas Society for Watercolor Golf Nuts...

thanks, lyn

JoA..thanks for the honesty

thanks, Marvin...will check club

seedy..thanks for the comments...it was me who left them like that...so yes, I guess "someone" would

05-01-2003, 10:08 PM
Pam, your composition was really a difficult one and you did pull it off... I do prefer the cropped version, though! Glad you're back...

05-02-2003, 11:24 AM
thanks, char

I'll have to consider the crop, I guess

05-02-2003, 11:41 AM
Pam, I thought that was a closeup--NOT a crop? I liked the original composition!


05-02-2003, 02:03 PM
As an avid golfer just wonderful! Can I have it?

05-02-2003, 02:16 PM
well, it was a close-up, lyn, yes

Borum...of course you can have it......$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ;)

I just wanted to be sneaky and pull this post back to the top.

Why?...because it deserves it.

I can see your palatte here again Pam.

Beautiful colors. I really like the way they
soften the whole picture.

Yepper...I'm a golfer too!

Maxfli...Titlist...La Jolla...You name dropper you!


Another beauty.
