This is my watercolor for the Daily Paintworks Challenge from last week (I actually painted it last week, just never posted it last week...so it counts!) I usually paint from photos and the challenge was to paint your veggies, so I poked around in the fridge and noted to myself...I really should eat more veggies....But my daughter always stocks the fridge with carrots for Handy and Jackie O (the horses).
Today I am working on this weeks challenge, which is a cute kitty sitting on the couch, will try to finish and post before next week. And yes, Handy did get to eat the carrot when I was done (sorry Jackie).
Very nice, Maria- the shadows are wonderful! Shadows are so important to get right and I love yours!ReplyDelete
Thank you Sheryl! It is definitely different to paint from real life than painting from photos, I am really working on making my shadows more lively, less flat, so glad you can tell!ReplyDelete
Hi Maria. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog.ReplyDelete
Nice carrot--it's got great volume: it turns!
It is definitely different painting from life.
BTW I love the background, the pink and orange splashes, on your blog too!
Looks good - love the shadows xxReplyDelete
