Artists Statement

I paint as often and as much as I can. I take classes when I can afford it, but the money usually goes to buy more art supplies. This blog is to share the results with you! I am a Work in Progress.

A Challenge, with a do-over

Here is one of the first challenges I ever did. I just discovered "challenges" this spring. The pale one was first, and the most realistic. It was a pale photo, and it was an interesting challenge to match the qualities of the photo. But then, remember that "she can't leave well enough alone" thing I have going? I wanted more color, and to crop it a bit, tweak it. So I did. Not very adventurous perhaps, but it felt good.

  1. I like the original and the new versions - I think I prefer the new one in fact. The terracotta and wood, along with the leaves - really nice changes you did to the colors & values. I also like that you made the background solid - I felt the original background distracts me a bit. And all these changes made those wonderful yellow tulips just pop! Nice job!
