Anyway . . . I decided I would only Blog about the Challenge every few days or so rather than each day I do a new piece. Easier on me and one less email you have to deal with! I started a few days late into this too because I thought I was going to be away . . . on that vacation :(
This is the first piece that I did. As you can see from the different styles I am still 'exploring' which road I want to travel with my painting as versus my Collages. Right now I'm enjoying the different 'moods' (and my husband would so agree with the 'mood' part!) so I guess that's what counts the most.
This is the first piece I did called "Sunsets are Free'
Sunsets are Free
12" x 12" Acrylic on Canvas
Colorwise, this is probably closer to my Collages than the next two. I enjoyed painting this one and have another, larger piece in this style started.
Next comes 'Abandoned to the Night'
Abandoned to the Night
5" x 7" Acrylic on Wood panel
And lastly 'Night Watch'
6" x 6" Acrylic on wood panel
I did this background like I do on a lot of my Collages ~ with a brayer. Then I just let it tell me which direction to go. I saw a forest and then decided to add this tree sitting on these rocks (from a photo I'd taken last winter actually ~ the tree was in hibernation and the rocks covered with snow?!! : /
If you remember, last week I did the Palette knife painting (before the challenge started). If you have a moment, I would love comments, or thoughts, on what you like best (or don't like). Thank you.
In the meantime, have a great weekend!
