This is my 90 minute challenge. I wanted to keep this painting as fresh as I could by laying each stroke down carefully and trying to not go over an area more than necessary. I was very happy with the results. My other goal was to work with pure color and use very little white.

This week's challenge at DPW was to paint a piece of crumpled paper...Oh my...what a challenge indeed. I broke the paper into major planes and using a value range of dark, medium, and light I then included planes in each of the major planes. Capturing the glow of the light shining through the paper was quite difficult. This is an excellent challenge and I thouroughly enjoyed it.

Ohhhh it is truly Sping here in the South. I dug and raked yesterday and today I plant bulbs. While shopping I saw these sunflowers and after several days of wishing I had bought them...they were there! I used a red underpainting in this painting and love the small area that peek through.

I have a tendency to overwork a painting and this was an attempt to limit brushstrokes and to work quickly and deliberately...... ...
This is in response to a request......
