 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...😴

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.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Trev, your submission is also excellent. My word this is going to be a challenge and a half to cast a vote.  You are both such good artists.
