Re: Different Strokes (a forum project): June 2010

Well it's four days after the 20th of this month, but I finally got to do this project. Done in guasch on Canson w/c paper 9 x 12. I've been trying the guasch paints lately and like them a lot. Lil

Re: Different Strokes (a forum project): June 2010

Hi Gang - what a delight to come back from holiday and find all these amazing interpretations of the reference - love all the drama, the crops, the 'attack' at the subject - they're brilliant! Thank you all.

I'll comment individually later - for now, I'll upload mine ........ I did it before going away and was itching to upload on tues 15th!!!

On mountboard (matting), approx 12x16".
As I loved the ref, I did a straightforward interpretation this time.



I know the bowl seems to be falling over but I ain't about to correct it now!!!!!!!

Re: Different Strokes (a forum project): June 2010

Oh my goodness Maureen, what a corker. All the detail beautifully captured in the cloth and the background but it doesn't compete with the subject at all. It looks so real I feel I could reach in and pluck out that luscious mango. I bow to the master . IT IS GORGEOUS and was worth the wait.
Steven - I am sorry I missed commenting on yours before, you did a beauttiful job on it.
Dougal - I love the limited palette, it gives it an all together different mood.
LIL - Yours is so bright and cheerful and full of light.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to look and comment on mine

Re: Different Strokes (a forum project): June 2010

Christine - I really like the strength in your painting, the under texture adds drama and vitality too. Really like those playful colour/brushstrokes on the lighted areas of the cloth. this painting has so much energy!

Dewi - a very interesting crop of the cloth/pattern and cherries - they do go well together. You've observed that fabric well!

Erica - very nice! I do like the drama of this painting - you've actually increased that with the subdued lights and greater intensity between lights and darks ....... very nice indeed!

EP - really like this bold tribute to Mondrian! I like the contrast between the geometric b/g and the modelling on bottle and bowl.
Nice simplification keeping the essence of the reference.

Trevor - excellent bottle and bowl - very believable! I love the almost abstract and vibrant treatment of the fabric on the base - that bottom left corner has a life of its own!

Judith - totally different concept here - very colourful and a lovely painting.
I like the idea of a very limited colour selection.

Nancie - how nice this is! Love the crop and the abstract feel to this ...... did you posterise the image first? That cherry is superb! Nice colours too.

Colin - hi and welcome to Diff. Strokes - thank you for joining us!
I like this crop and your interpretation - love the shapes and modelling on the cherries particularly.
For this size piece (and often larger) I use the scanner - almost always get better results than I do with the camera!
Otherwise, I set the painting on an easel as close to vertical as possible, in good light, and use the camera on a tripod, close enough for the image to fill the screen. The trick is getting an even light when not possessing special photo floods!

Sue - this is a very nice painting - like the colours!
It's a pity the image is a little blurred - I've tried sharpening it a bit and added it to your post - if you're not happy with it, I'll remove it!
the fabric movement is good and I like the added table bit!

Kathie - very dark, dramatic and intimate! Nice work indeed!

Dougal - welcome to our Different Strokes - and nice to see such a different interpretation of this ref.
There's a nice glass feeling to the bottle and I like the nergetic brushwork.

Oh Lil! What a bummer to use gouache instead of acrylics - but thanks for telling us - I don't think anyone would have realised!! Nice painting too

Christine and Kathie - thank you (Christine, you make me blush girl!!!)

Thanks to all for taking part - there's still time to upload work - I won't make the Gallery until later this week.

A plea!!!
Unfortunately, Patti can't host next month's D/S, so if anyone would like to take it, please PM me - or leave a message here.

Re: Different Strokes (a forum project): June 2010

Between storms, power outages, family reunion and WiFi only working part time, I am not getting much accomplished.

I did want to stop by and say how much I enjoyed looking at all the different crops and creative paintings. Nice work everyone.

I learn a lot just by "looking". You give me ideas... sometimes that could be dangerous ya know!
