Re: Monthly Challenge and Chat ~ February 2018

Thanks! Had my wisdom tooth that I broke out today. It's pretty sore but on the good side it wasn't nearly as expensive as they said it would be as it came right out.

I do look a lopsided chipmunk though, my face is swollen like crazy on one side.

I love the chickadees, they are such cheerful little birds.

Apples and Roses, 120x160mm (about 4.7x6.3" ~29.6 sq inches), acrylic on canvas.

Done in 2 hrs at the 2018-02-02 Cosham Art Group meeting.

Colour balance of scan, not quite right?

Generalsynopsism your scan looks good to me. Greens and yellows are notoriously difficult to scan. You captured the textures beautifully. I like how you did the water jug, nice highlights on the apple too.

An art group sounds fun!

These are both acrylic. They're both on painted over canvases which is what the texture is.

The balloon is 4x4 on a red painted background.



This one is 4x6.



Looks like we're getting a snow storm!

Hi Maria! Hope you're doing okay! Nice to see you.

Mary, your chickadee is lovely!

Thanks Christel, I had fun doing that. I was kind of going for a stylized Matisse sort of thing with the outlines but than forgot what I was doing. It's funny though I did cover up a chickadee painting that I didn't like to do that one. Now I have to paint another chickadee.

The balloon was lots of fun, I really liked painting on the red, in real life the contrast makes the blue glow.
