Re: Madelaine 1/20

Madelaine #8 and her medieval tapestry look, taken from "The Captive Unicorn" circa 1500. Fabriano Tiziano, dark blue, 5 Pentels, and one white Neopastel.

Your thoughts and ideas always welcome.

Excellent work, MaryFlora! The medieval tapestry Madelaine is just delightful.

Re: Madelaine 1/20

OMG, I am loving your Matisse Madelaine! What a great imagination you have. It's just brilliant.

Great job with the bit of re-work on the negative/B&W. She's perfect!

And #6 Maddie is delicate and lovely. #8 has beautiful texture, and I love your palette here.

You're doing great!

Re: Madelaine 1/20

Great going, Mary!

My favorite is #4 - it does have this "warm and dry climate" feel and the use of blue paper is very smart!

Matisse style work is fun and happy!

Wanted to comment on your Holbeins and Canson combo. I've heard Holbein "doesn't like" Canson Mi-Teints. Could be the reason they felt stiff and didn't work that well.

Re: Madelaine 1/20

Thank you all! I love your enthusiastic support and wise advice!
A community definitely helps you keep going and trying.

That's an interesting note, Mira, about the Holbein and Canson combination. I'd not read that before, but it certainly matches my experience!

Maddie #9 is a mix of #7 and #8 and is reaction to the string of gray days we have had lately. I'd wanted to integrate Maddie more into the flowers but couldn't quite get there, so decided on a simpler approach and still managed to lose my design while working.

Re: Madelaine 1/20

I don't think you lost a thing here - Maddie looks bright and cheerful, surrounded by the colorful flowers. Bright, happy palette - I love it!

Mary, this one carries a warm, happy feeling - nice to see it during these grey autumn/winter days!

Re: Madelaine 1/20

Thank you Mira, Christel, Terri, and Sarah for enjoying Madelaine!

Below are three efforts where I am trying to find my way with light in a painting, obviously a long way to go! A long, long, way.... Also my snow needs work! (There is plenty to practice with sitting outside!)

Your wisdom and experience always valued!

#10 Morning


#11 This weekend blizzard, very flat light and 18" of snow




#12 Late afternoon after storm passed
