As soon as I saw this I knew it was just my 'thing' - so I snagged it - cropped it - posterized it inked and painted it :D 7 x 5 Watercolour.
(No longer am I slave to the ref pic - FREEDOMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!)

What a great crop, and geometric lines that absolutely rule !! :clap: And those wonderful colours on the boards, fantastic !! I take off my hat to you for becoming master of the painting- I'm still limping along begging it to behave instead of taking control, as you do . :clap: :clap:

Pat, how did I know this is the one you would choose. Sort of goes along with your Boot series. LOL You absolutely crack me up.

I love your interpretation of this house. Love the happy colors and your wood treatment. Great job!

Thanks everyone - must admit I love doing these 'posterized' paintings - gives me a chance to actually do stuff that I wouldnt normally attempt - like faces - and the colours are so bright which suits me perfectly.....great fun.

Thanks again.

Pat..... this is a cracking interpretation, great colours, super crop and best of all it shows you had fun!!! I love it!!!
:clap: :clap:

Freedom suits you well! One can almost hear the tinny piano music and clinking glasses from inside.

06-13-2004, 04:22 PM
Your interpretation of this is terrific. You are getting to be a really, really good painter.

06-13-2004, 04:27 PM

I think this is really beautiful :clap: but dummy me I don't understand "polarized". Is that something that you do in a computer program? I would love to "see" all these colors in an image.

06-13-2004, 09:12 PM
awesome, even better when ya make it your own, love it :clap: :clap: :clap: geminidream :)
