Well, I'm Not a Quitter!


I'm still trying to get a decent painting of the sweetpeas! Did this, from sketch to where it's at right now - in class yesterday. I let the color bleed out to white at the bottom because I had to finish and leave - running out of time - it's not finished, needs some darks and some interesting shapes in the area behind the flowers and if I don't leave a few whites I am going to smack myself (since there's no one else here to do it for me)!

Also, in class I shared the Tangled painting and Sandy cropped down the top = not right; then she cropped in a bit, giving it a strong vertical feeling = I think this is what it needs.

Hi Rhonda, yeah you are not a quitter,that's how we learn, right?Isn't funny how intimidating a piece of paper can be? I love the horizontal lines on the lower painting of the woman.

Wow what nice work. I found your blog via your comment on John Salmon's. I like the Moley Doodles too. I'll be back from time to time.

Sometimes I think I'm just too dense not to know when to quit, Cathy! ha ha
Thanks, Michell, I think it works better this way.
Mark, thanks for stopping by and do return - now I have to go check out your blog (isn't it fun to meet new artists online?)
