Landscapes and 10 more Rainbow Kitties for PPF
Since last week's PPF I have painted bunches of stuff. Too many paintings for one blog post, so go here if you want to see the rabbit, the truck (SOLD) and the lion, and my Summer of Color 4 post for this past week.
I got a ton of mats on Etsy all different sizes, so I can paint on paper and mat the results to sell and hang. This is a 5x7 acrylic on 140# paper, painted for a challenge on Daily Paintworks. I matted it with the orange and now it is 8x10 so it fits in a standard frame. I don't do landscapes usually, but it's a nice change of pace.
This is the photo they provided to inspire us.
I painted it twice.
Both are for sale, auction style, at www.pennyleestewart.com
Here is my first one.
And another version I did for the same challenge
There is no prize. It's just a way to stretch yourself by trying something new.
10 More ACEO Rainbow Kitties. Days 11-20.
My challenge is to paint 30 ACEO Rainbow Kitties in June 2014. I am on track so far, but getting a little bit tired of the colorful cats. Only 10 more to go. You can see them all in my Ebay Store here. I think my favorite so far is the Calico Quilted Cat Patches. The Picasso-esque cubism Kitty is my 2nd fave. I may do another one of that style.
