Re: Different Strokes : March 2012 Challenge

Purple - not out of your depth at all! I like the oranges and the overhead viewpoint and the patterns of the cloth track nicely across the area.

Ros - welcome to this part of the world - I like your 'messy' abstract b/g and those oranges are fabulous!
Come back in April

Re: Different Strokes : March 2012 Challenge

Sorry I missed this one ... family matters got in the way. Really nice work from everyone ... and a few really outstanding ones! Congrats everyone! I look forward to the next one ... new at this so don't expect much. I've been watching some classes but haven't done actual work yet ... scary getting started! LOL

Such a fabulous job everyone did. I am so happy to have found you guys and I just know that my painting skills will grow with time and continued participation in these fun challenges. Thanks so much for being so open and inviting for us newbies! I love seeing all the different styles and interpretations of the themes. Can't wait for April!

This is an 10 X 8 wrapped canvas acrylic. I looked to high light the reflected light off of the tangerines not making so much of the background but contrasting the warm and cool colors.

Linda - so glad you joined in!
Love the chunky use of paint/brush strokes in this - the whole 'impressionistic' treatment - very nice painting.
