Re: Allison's Painting A Day Challenge

Day 16 Mannequin with Paint
26 x 36 cm oil on canvas

The mannequin is wood, but with all the cool greys, maybe he looks more like the tin man?

Re: Allison's Painting A Day Challenge

I love all of these, Allison. It's not only your skillful execution, but your whimsical subject matter and approach on several that's so appealing. So often I would like to strangle my own Cookie Monster (well, Candy Monster, actually in my case), so I especially appreciated that one. And that last one looks like some kind of riff on "Invitation to the Dance," except for painting instead. It's like the model's saying, "Come on, I dare you. It's time to pick up your paints and go..."

How is your son?

Re: Allison's Painting A Day Challenge

Forgot to mention these three have sold on my Facebook page. Had a lovely cup of tea today with a fellow artist, whom I did not know, but who wanted to come by in person to pick up the painting Coffee Pot Reflections.

Re: Allison's Painting A Day Challenge

A variant of the mannequins came to mind. How about you strap that tube of paint to his back and pose him climbing a steep slope, almost collapsing under the weight?

It would be kind of a cute metaphor for the Sisyphean efforts of painters in general...

Hmm, I just might.

Day 19 Origami 2
34 x 34 cm oil on canvas

Remembering my inner child. What is this thing called in English? Lea says it’s a Flip-Flap, but I don’t remember that word when I used to play with them. We used to write stuff inside them like “you are going to marry Tommy Zarazacha and have 8 kids….”

Day 20 Chinese Lantern
48 x 31 cm oil on canvas.

I have no idea what the Chinese text says; I just thought it looked nice with the lantern. Maybe I should have added a moth?

Re: Allison's Painting A Day Challenge

Day 21 Banana Basket
40 x 50 cm oil on canvas.

This is an Imprimatura - Italien for first wash of color. I then used terpentine to “erase” back to the canvas layer for the highlights, and used more of the same color paint to work in the shadows. Only Burnt Umber used. I had so much fun with this. Maybe I’ll make another one tomorrow. Perhaps in a brighter color.

Day 23 Robbie’s Sneaker with Orchids
35 x 45 cm oil on canvas

Raw Umber and Krapplak make a beautiful wine color.
I am asking friends to give me their old, worn out shoes. Next summer I want to make a series of paintings which will contrast worn shoes, boots, slippers... with fresh blooms of flowers.
