Re: Madelaine 1/20

There's very real improvment in your series, well done. In these last three, Madelaine is placed perfectly in the scene. The last is beautiful with the yellow light contrasting beautifully with the coolness of the scene.

Re: Madelaine 1/20

Thank you Christel and Sarah. I'm so pleased you see improvement, that means a lot! Number 13 will probably have you retracting that thought.

Re: Madelaine 1/20

#13 Madelaine and the multicolored bushes.

This effort and experiment on scraping back was based on a wonderful painting by Susan Heideman, Staghorn Forest #2, as shown in the book, Oil Pastel, by Kenneth Leslie.

Things I would do differently next time: place Madelaine more to the left, place the first colors more randomly and avoid the bars, use more black ....




Your insights welcome!

Re: Madelaine 1/20

I am really enjoying your series, Mary. They have all been good, but the last several have been extra good! I'm enjoying this one, your #13, too. The scraping back looks great, and gives more dimension to the painting. Love the black, too.

I have a copy of Leslie's book - I'll have to go look up your reference. It's been a while since I've looked through the book, but I recall it being full of great artists as well as information.
