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

First, thank you to all of you who were so kind on my simple little abstract. Now that I look at the work & time I see you all did, I feel I should have done something a bit more involved. Unfortunately, time this month did not allow. When I do paint this image again, I'll be sure to post it as a separate thread.

Now I have a chance to go through and look at all this gorgeous work & comment on them. (I hope I didn't miss anyone, if I did, it was unintentional).

Christine - Really great use of color! Love all the fire-colored elements you added.

Dewi - I love this. The size, the colors & the comp. I wish my cropped version carried as much interest as this does. Well done!

Erica - I agree, it is the busiest one I've looked at doing too! You handled all the elements really well, and created a sense of drama too.

EP - as always, your paintings make me smile. Love the simplicity. Funny, the background reminds me of a dress I wore back in the 60's!

Trevor - also dramatic in colors, I really like how you handled the fabric. It is one of the busiest areas on the image and you just made it a flow of color rather than paint the details. Nice touch.

Judith - hot, hot, hot! The hot colors just sing out. Very nice work with a simple palette of colors.

Colin - nice closeup, interesting crop. Love the shapes you get with this.

Sue - congrats on picking up the brush again! Very nice work you did on a challenging image!

Kathie - another interesting crop, making the fruit bowl the center of attention. Your old world colors add's to the drama & mood. Nice work.

Christine - love your piece. The brush strokes and splashes of color works great. This makes me think of an article I read recently about "broken color" and how it allows the viewers eye to do some of the blending.

Dougal - I like the work you did here, adding in the softer, cooler green changes the mood of the painting, making it seem lighter. Like the fabric & bottle, nice work.

Lil - this is a wonderful piece. Like Marueen said, I would not have known it wasn't acrylics. Lovely color balance to this.

Maureen - excellent realism. The background, fabric, reflections. Just excellent work. I, too, bow to the master.

old hobbyist - this is a wonderful job of realism also. You did the detail of that background fabric so well. Very nice work!

Maureen - thanks for hosting, and EP - looking forward to our next challenge, thanks for jumping in.

C&C always welcome!

Nice work everyone! Sorry I didn't take part but I just don't feel like pulling out the acrylics these days. I did paint a digital cherry though, I posted it in Painter's Alley in the digital forum.
C&C always welcome. Michelle

Lol Michelle - if only we could add digis here!:[email protected]

Jim - very realistic - I'm used to seeing more brushstrokes from you! - the fabric had very organic shapes to the folds.
Cheers, Maureen
