if this meant to be a poll, I vote for Jays suggestion about a nocturne as theme.
Could be interesting and I have never done one before.
Jay, adding the patch of colors is a real improvement. It creates a focus and therefor the painting grabs the attention longer.
Peggy you have nice textures and I like how the sea recedes to the background.
Kris you have a very vivid sunflower sketch. Is it finished or is it a WIP?
Cali, your turbulent sky is really bold and has a good light.
Here comes my contribution for this month.
"Ruchenköpfe" hard and soft pastels on PastelMat (30x40cm)
The reference was a photo I took this spring on a hiking tour, because the cliffs impressed me.
This time I had no underpainting as the PastelMat card was really dark, but I am not sure if this was wise.
C&C always welcome
