View Full Version : I don't make the bed...

Here is another excercise from college - had to paint something from around the house. Looking through my house I learnt quickly how uninteresting everything is. So finally I went for the bedsheets.

What a great exercise they had for you and you picked a great subject. Amazing how simple crumpled sheets can be so interesting.Your lights and shadows are really well done here and nice soft colors.How big is this? would be awesome on a large support.:thumbsup:

Those shadows/wrinkles are great! I love how you've taken an ordinary sight and turned it into something beautiful!

Nice selection! There's something very sensuous about this!

It turned out to be a really nice painting. When I don't make my bed, I wish it looked that good.

Wonderful, I love it! What size is it? I think it would look awesome as a large painting.

See ..... I knew there was yet another excuse for me to borrow for NEVER getting around to make my bed (except when company comes) .......:D

I am sort of tired tonite and thought your painting was the reference photo! This is a great painting and esp the shadows of the headboard. ...:thumbsup:

Beautiful Naomi! Congratulations. Great work on the wrinkles in the fabric and the headboard with shadows. Really pulls the headboard forward and off the wall.

Thanks everyone. I feel so loved ;)

This is only smallish, 12 in x 12 in.

My first attempt at fabric folds. They're surprising to paint, you just do each as a shape of it's own and stand back and suddenly, it's SHEETS! Then I just added more highlights for extra pizzaz!

Thanks all :)
