      Hey everyone, didn’t get to finish even one last month, so I thought I do a progress image just in case the past repeats itself.

      It cheap OPs overlaid with some Senns white. On rough green sketch paper.

       

      While flower :)

            When my daughter she very strongly told us ‘she hated walking’. I have to say, a bit like a 3 year old, ‘I hate tackling flowers’.

            Thanks very much Christel.

              Love your white flower over that rough green paper, Jennie – turned out beautifully!

              I’m working on my painting for this White challenge, but haven’t been able to upload anything successfully yet.    I have tried using the Insert/Edit button in the blue bar above each post, as well as the Upload attachments underneath each post.   None of the files was over 250 KB, so while they never loaded, it wasn’t something obvious like file size, which is a common culprit.

              I hope to get this settled so I can continue to participate.

              You could also try the attach feature?

                Beautiful, Jennie Jo, really like how you worked the petals. They look very natural.

                So good to see you here in our new playground!

                  Thanks Terri. This try was going to be my last try. Hope you get lucky.

                  I’d love to see how you approach ‘white’.

                  Thanks Mary. Worked for ages on some of those petals! And, yes, it is nice to use my pastel sticks again.

                    There are still more of the references I want to do. Here is the first one I finished. 9×12 on Canson  WC paper Mungyo extra soft water soluble oil pastels I just got.

                      Hi Deborah, very nice!   I love your pinkish whites on the buildings.   I have the same set of the Mungyo water-soluble op’s, they’re very creamy.   Looks like they did great on your watercolor paper.

                      Hope to see more from you! :bye:

                      Love it, Deborah! I’ve always found snow scenes difficult to paint – I don’t see snow here B-)

                        Here is my offering for the “white” Challenge:

                         

                         

                        This is a copy of one of the many paintings Pablo Picasso did of a woman named Sylvette David.  She worked in the mid-1950’s at the pottery studio where he had a space to work.   She kept her hair up in this style and he was struck by it, and did many portraits in many styles.

                        This one worked for me because it’s so monotone – I used the full range of Neopastel grays here, and 2-3 different whites and blacks.    12×16″ Arches oil paper.    It was so odd not have color, but also very freeing.   One of the most fun things I’ve ever painted.
