Turps245: I would have had to have pencilled it in first
Jen the sad part is I did. I was hurrying it too much to get yogrt it posted by the end of the month .That is what you get when you don't take your time and do it right.
C and C always welcomed
I clicked Quick Reply, but this is not...going thru the entire month now that I have a moment. Hope I didn't omit anyone or works by mistake! It's all great stuff!
Alex, your ptg. of the church is so soft and colors lovely. Am ready for fall after seeing this. Pretty burdock. Your ptg. of Jessica in the field is esp. wonderful...the colors and how you mingled the subtle tones while playing against the brighter ones. Alex, I like both sunflower buds, but am prob. partial to the 2nd one for its coloring. However, what you like is most imp.. The piglet took me by surprise - what an expression! Good pink for him - he wears it well. The prickly pear ptg. is another pretty and soft one.
Geri, your church drwg. has good contrast. Your Hogs are SO adorable and the ptg. is one of your best!!
Claudia, it's so nice to see some clay pieces on this forum - looks fun. Bandit looks so sweet!! ...some nice shading on him too. Your sunflower work presents a nice story - esp. like the ink bottle. Would run the background color up to the table and perhaps inc. some dk. contrast by the book (just one opinion), but the fact that you used your own recipes or natural ingred. for this is totally AWESOME. The boy in the sprinkler turned out very well - can feel his splashes. Your harvest field is my favorite - love the colors!
Bonnie - very interesting interp. for the pigs; colorful! The pencil sunflower is well defined and some wonderful contrast too. I love your sailboat ptg. - so clean and fresh.
Sonia, so good to see your work. The church drwg. is very nice.
jfGarcia - the reflections on the girl in the pool are a nice touch. Some nice skin colors on the girl in the wheat field...perhaps more grass over her in front would make her appear more like she's among the grasses.
Karen - Super sunflowers! The background is perfect for it too.
Jen - the drwg. of Curley's brother shows he has spunk and determined. I esp. like the boy in ink...some super shading and control of the pen. No-longer-Curley One has some wonderful colors and I love how the water is done on the pavement which looks tricky. Your pig drwg. shows some nice expressions, as if they are curious about us. Like your zen girl on carousel horse! great face - love it. (maybe some floor for her?)
Sarah - Boy with tractor: love his shirt esp, but I also like how you did the stone/brick he's on. All VERY nicely done. Ptg. of Piper your dog is perfect! Jeeves...wow. The bee is esp. nice with the light on the flower and his shadow from his wings on it, not to mention his great texture. Your harvest scene...tack that onto my fav. list pls.. The windmill ptg. really captured the atmosphere. The yacht in acrylic is awesome. I can see the depth of colors and your work paid off. The colors on the sow ptg. are super, as well as texture.
Nealey, Cosmo is impressive as a dog but also as your drwg.. How great. Your car drwg. is so good! Lots of good detail there but you show the love of the subj. too.
Cristina, I like your first ptg. with the sky and the butterfly on the flower - inspiring. The doggie is cute and love his button face. The middle one - the sunflower petals have rich colors and texture which contrast well with the smoothly blended face. Her face is distracting to me - unrealistic things going on such as an eyebrow? coming out of her eyelid but it's interesting and prob. a conversation starter.
Joseph - Great atmosphere in your surfer ptg. - like it!
E.D. - so good to see ya back! Your duck pastel is my fav. of your work - great going!
Denis - Great to see you on the forum. The ptg. of the girl in the wheat field is colorful...esp. like her hair. Hope to see more of your work.
Shameer - some great darks on your drwg. of the boy with the faucet.
Catherine, love the quick piggies!
Sheila, wonderful ptgs of the tractor and of Nathan. The smoke and dust are convincing. I like the comp. for Nathan's ptg.. Well done!
Mike F - Some nice colors and washes on your island ptg.. The sunflower has some great yellows. Hope to see more of your work.
Fred, I esp like the beach pastel and colors for it.

Hello Kim ~ I know, quick reply doesn't work for me either. Thanks for your comments on my drawings; I do love my Cosmo!

You guys rock, what wonderful creations I've seen here, GREAT job to everyone!
A beautiful week-end and Labor Day to you all!
This was a little chapel across from our house. I never saw it, because it was torn down in the 60th. I recently got a picture of it. The two people came from a different picture.
It's Encaustic on wood, 27,6" x 19,7", 50cm x 70 cm.

Hi Claudia, this is a lovely encaustic of the chapel that used to be across the road. I like the fact that you used pale washes of yellow and blue on the walls of the building and am so amazed that you can create "soft focus" looks (grass in foreground and foliage in the distance) with wax. The couple in the painting gives it a feeling that it's not just a painting of a building, but that there's a story tied to it.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Claudia, this Chapel is wonderful. I like your use of the warm and cool colours. I'm drawn to the lovely doors, leading into the Chapel. Nice work on the shingled roof. I agree with Alex the people do indicate a story.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Claudia neat picture of the chapel. Nice bright color without being garish.
