Re: ****November Challenge ****

Thank you Tressa! I was so excited that i figured out how to make a new banner heading for the blog so the momentum carried me to finish it! I am thinking about updating my regular blog now....or should I paint!

Karen

Re: ****November Challenge ****

I've found time to do some painting, so here's my week:


variation 11


variation 12


variation 13,

So--do you think I lost my mind on the last one? (I love it!) It's Pans on Colourfix Premium. The other two are sticks on buttercup Pastelmat.

Anyway, if I can get all my pix into a gallery I'll post the whole month to the October gallery thread, but I preferred to paint.

Deborah

Re: ****November Challenge ****

Deborah and Tressa - these are great! Love the 3rd very abstracted version you did, Deborah. I just wish I could see the entire painting without having to pan down my screen.

Tressa - I really like the sense of depth and texture you got with those orange grasses with the blue water.

I'm not sure when I'll have time to get back on track with the challenge, so I'll live vicariously through everyone else's work for the time being!

Deborah,
Love the pan one I like the light and how you did the tree.I also like no2.

Tressa,
Love the colours. I have realised while doing this challenge that I really like orange/golden colours in landscape.

Re: ****November Challenge ****

Wow Deborah I love the last one! Especially the bottom part. It looks like it was fun to do!
Tressa, I really like yours too. Amazing what you can do with the pans. I have to try them someday!

Thanks for the nice comments everyone! #13 has a lot of swing and sway to it.

Thanks for the kudos...it was done with the little tools, except for the initial layer with the larger sponges

Re: ****November Challenge ****

Deborah, I like all of yours. That last one makes me feel as if I'm running on the track, real sense of speed.
Tressa, love the orange and I love the sky in that one too.
I seem to have lost momentum and have only done one this week so far. Am I right that the week started on 11/1 though so I've still got a few days?

Re: ****November Challenge ****

"yea Ruthie, I think this week has a few more days, but just jump back in, and thanks.

One interesting thing I realized, is after the second painting, I haven't even used my ref pic any more. I misplaced it when I started my 3rd, and so just winged it, and then never used it again after...
I also noticed, like a few others, going for similar color choices, even if they were dif values...hmmm
