Now I’ll have nightmares!! Seriously – great painting!
This is fantastic! Beautiful dog, beautifully painted! We have the same palette, and I have to say that I clean mine after every painting too!! A little OCD – but so what!!
Thanks so much! Trying to come to grips with the mop brush – it’s certainly a learning curve!
Found these to be a nice distraction from the Vietnam challenges!
Love the shadowy background, and think the change in dress is very clever!
Lovely, soft painting – this would make a wonderful notecard!
Excellent – you have nailed this one!
This is great!! Love the feel of this, and it looks like an authentic scene! I agree that the boats are difficult, but think yours are very good.
Your version is wonderful – just the sort of thing I would buy. Wonderful composition, color, feel – simply beautiful!
Try it with the baseball cap – it may seem incongruous, but that’s the type of hat you will see more often!!
Brilliant – as usual! We expect so much from you – but you never disappoint!
Thanks, Tina – and that is why I don’t usually redo a picture. I don’t ever paint the second one with the same enthusiasm!
Wow – this is great too! Love the Non La (Leaf Hats)!!
This is wonderful! Love the looseness. Well done!
Thanks again, Judy! These challenges are just that, challenging!! I will see if I can tweak this one a little. Forgot to leave any white on the mountains, so had to scratch out! Taking a break – have my grandkids tomorrow so will try again in a couple of days.
You’re right – I’ve nothing to lose, so I’ll have a go at fixing the first one. Still might take a break. We are supposed to be doing them in Patrick’s style, correct? Thanks for the helpful suggestions!
This is excellent, and from memory – impressive!
Not sure this is an improvement – think I will leave them for a few days and come back with a fresh eye. Seeing everyone’s entries is muddling my mind!
Tried again – little less loose. Both pics attached for comparison. Normally I don’t do a complete new picture, just try and fix the original, but this wouldn’t work this time.
I agree – take 2 is the one that appeals to me the most.
