Challenge for the week 24-30 June

Use an impressionistic style to paint any scene, but before you start, write down a few words that describe the mood or special feeling it invoked when you first saw it. You can paint plein air, or from a photograph but only if you were there when the photograph was taken. When you post your painting, please post your original words unchanged.


Get a box of tissues, open it, and pull one up. Sit the box on the table and draw it.. Shadows and all..

This one is going to be a good lesson in values, put in at least 5 values, and if necessary use your values tool you made. If you didn't make one, now is your chance..;-)

I know, I know, I'm late. No excuses for the one who held your feet to the fire...oh, oh oh ouch....
This again started life as something else. I decided to mix real and surreal here. Acrylic on canvas, 18X30?
