DSC_0009 (800x734)
oil on canvas board 6"X6"
This was painted for Artistic Sentiments challenge.
I was a little upset about the flower, I don’t know this type and was not sure about the shape.Maybe I’d ought  to add something at the bottom left to root it?
N'étant pas familiarisée avec cette fleur, j'avais des difficultés de reconnaissance , et j'ai essayé de prendre une photo d'une abeille, il y en avait beaucoup cette semaine, mais ce n'était pas convaincant non plus!

The DPW subject, this week, was to paint a white object, so I chose this pot I'd just bought last Sunday,at a "vide-grenier", for a song.We had to use only primary and secondary colors, and it was very funny to do it!

oil on board 5"x7"
Another painting for DPW, I  am not sure, once again , I followed the directions, with one color by stroke, which I 'd like to properly understand! It's easy to say, but not easy to do...Those two camelias were the first flowers in my garden, but  you cant' say on the picture what they are!I am aware maybe it's a little weird, because the potery vase has a tiny opening, it's a soliflore. I took the picture before a window, and painted there, in fact, but was a little sceptic about the background...

Hand towels

oil on canvas board 5"x7"
This one was painted for DPW challenge, which I like because each one chooses one’s own subject that avoids uniformity.
The aim was to paint one color per stroke.I am not sure I strictly followed  that, but I made an attempt, especially  for the background, anyway  I am going to make other tentative.
