Painting Challenge

SOLD with the money donated to help the Japanese people.
This was submittted to the daily paintworks Japanese Relief fundraiser.
This is my entry for the weekly Paintworks challenge:
INSTRUCTIONS: Draw your subject (any) on your canvas/board. Make sure you get everything in just the right place – this is very important for this challenge. Then, with a brush (if you have them use flats or brights – at least ½” wide), mix one color. Put down one stroke on your canvas/board. If it’s wrong, mix a new color and put a new stroke directly over the first. Mix a new color (feel free to adjust the first color, on your palette, to get the second, but make sure to start a new pile when needed). Put down one stroke. Mix a new color. Put down one stroke. You get the idea. Don't worry about edges – your painting SHOULD look sort of like a mosaic when you get done. If you start fussing, no dessert for you tonight!
This forced me to quit before I have gone too far and over worked a painting.
6x6 inch, oil on gessoed Ampersand Board.

This is one painted two years ago. If I had been blogging longer I could have posted it then.
Oil on canvas. sold


  1. This is different than the one on the DPW site. That one is of super fresh looking rabbits.
    I like the brush work in this one equally well! Both are winners!!
