Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Your Choice of Your Work from 2015

To all Acrylic Painters who submit work to this forum -

You are invited to choose, and post here, one of your works from last year.

It must have been shown in this forum in 2015 - please provide the link to the original thread so viewers may comment if they wish.

It does not necessarily have to be your 'best', but one which may have significance for you - it would be good if you added some comment about your choice.

*********************

This is a no comment thread: if you wish to add comments about any of the paintings please follow the link to the original thread and add your comment there.

Re: Your Choice of Your Work from 2015

I wasn't very productive last year, but I did host the Different Strokes Project for the first time and painted this peony.


These threads are usually closed afterwards so I'm not sure if I should post this here or not, but this is where the original is:

I also made a video of this one, if that is okay to post here:

Re: Your Choice of Your Work from 2015



This was one of my few works this past year. Hope to have more works this year. This is a painting from photos taken 30 years ago which I hope to duplicate this year from photos taken of the same people and the same place with the next generation coming on board as well. Hopefully won't take 30 years to complete...
I'm not sure how to add the link, which is on page three at the present time.

Re: Your Choice of Your Work from 2015

I posted 5 works in 2015 (not nearly enough, but it was a tough year for me). This one may not have been the best but it is my favorite. I spent more time on this damn painting than anything ever before...It took me a month and a half, most days I did at least some work on it. A labor of love?

Re: Your Choice of Your Work from 2015

This I knocked out for myself in about 4 weeks, painting only on the weekends It now resides above the bed. I thoroughly enjoyed painting this. After painting a frame on the wall around the triptych it now feels complete. My only bug about this is that the left panel feels visually tight compared to the other two

18X24, 48X24, 18X24 + boarder = 88X28 inches



Here is the thread and more detail here and here

This was an exciting and strenuous learning exercise that was probably my best painting last year.

"Burlesque Trio", "30x"40

Re: Your Choice of Your Work from 2015

I only seem to have painted for Different Strokes this year so mine is the one for the March 2015 challenge.

It's of Tintern Abbey in South Wales, 10x8 on mountboard and the colour is W&N Indanthrene Blue, PB60. Had it for years and hardly used - the colour part was the challenge!
I took the photo on a blazingly hot day in 2014 and liked the drama of the soaring columns and strong light and shade.

Re: Your Choice of Your Work from 2015

Altho I posted several ptgs in 2015, most have been on the challenge forum. My 1937 Hudson Terraplane ptg just won a ribbon in a group show. So that's my choice for this year.

Re: Your Choice of Your Work from 2015

Really undecided about this but at the end of the day decided to go with the one I personally liked the best because I loved painting it and it came out easily: Point No Point

I only did one painting last year, a painting for a friend.

Re: Your Choice of Your Work from 2015

My choice for 2015 is the bee.. it open a new world of painting style for me. Was a really nice learning process for materials, technique and realism with the support of WC members.
