Re: Six in the City.......

This is really unusual. I like the design and the colours. How did you get the colours watery and yet substantial enough on canvas?

Re: Six in the City.......

Thank you Char, JoAnn, Candie, Carol, Lyn, Gilberte and Pastel Moma - I appreciate very much you taking the time to look and comment.

Carol, it's a bit trial and error. I splosh the paint on and then spritz with enough water to make it run. Have to be careful not to make mud though!

Re: Six in the City.......

I do like this treatment - it's colourful and expressive and original.
The group seems to be increasing with each post......anyone for 9?

Re: Six in the City.......

I really like your bold use of color and your technique. This composition is very rhythmic, if I can use that word to discribe a painting. It keeps my eyes moving and keeps me in the painting long enough to really appreciate what you've done the seven, ahem, ladies.
