 I worked on this for a while, got lost in all that material and had a mishap with the baskets.  So I found this quite challenging. 


This is done in watercolor and on Arches 140 lb paper (cold pressed).

Thank you Patricia, Pav, Trev and Gita.

 I agree Trev we are always jumping in quickly.  I am always in search of something to paint so the challenges appeal to me. Your painting is well done and I love the way you have done the baskets .  You have a talent for simplifying which I admire. It was a toughie for sure!

Gita, I am hoping your painting is acceptable for the challenge as I think you did an amazing job on a very difficult painting.

I agree Mary lou, Trev can simplify and it looks so painterly. Val is yet to comment. In fact there is not much interest in oil painting on paper...😴

Ty Njn and Gita, Gita pls enter the challenge! The more the merrier. I always love looking at the different submissions and seeing the different approaches, I always learn by seeing others efforts...

I still can’t submit mine since I don’t know if it’s a painting or mixed media. Waiting for an answer from Val. I drew the outlines with ink instead of pencil.
I shall link the thread where one can see my rendition with oils on paper. I might paint another one in case it’s not accepted.

Ah I see your dilemma. It’s not an ink and wash and you used been as your guiding sketch. Personally I’d let it slide...it’s a lovely painting by the way. You executed the details very well...I hope Val let’s you submit  :smart:

Irrespective of the challenge part, Trev, I am thankful to implement Vals photo  :1hug: and discover something new. Never had reflected about painting with oils on paper, till now. Maybe that’s why challenges also exist... to discover oneself  ::). Now, I am actively going to pursue this and get some more experience since I see some benefits for my personal painting habits.

This is my submission, this time done with oils on double primed watercolour paper. After the practice with the first painting this repetition was a bit easier.  :)

Fantastic Gita! I’m so glad you entered and you did such a superb job. Also such good detailing! Hopefully a few more last minute entries and this will be a really fun race. Much more exciting when there are more entries don’t you think?

Thank you Trev! I love to see the interpretation of fellow artists. I find it so inspiring!
Btw. Here are the  “selling sisters” for comparison 😂😂. The left painting on unprimed paper and the right one (my submission for the challenge) on double primed paper.

I missed mentioning earlier, Patricia, sorry, I like your rendition with the black background! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Post by: Happychappy on February 28, 2019, 06:00:04 PM
 :thankyou:  Gita, I think you were referring to my mixed media submission in which I used a black background because I could not see clearly what was in the background from my printed copy. I think I need a new printer. However, I quite liked the black background. Thank you again.
