"Opposing Teams" 8" x 8" oil on gessobord


Here we are at that time of the year where all the teams come out wearing opposing colored shirts. I picked blue and gold with a magenta referee. I always think these Christmas balls are going to be a cinch to paint and I'm not sure if it's best to see each ball as a solid value and keep all the colors of that ball one value....or to go outside the predominant value. I will keep trying with these. I cannot draw a circle, but I can paint one. Why is that?

Hey Kathryn - You are brave to choose this subject, but you knocked it out of the park. Thanks for visiting my site. Am thinking about switching to blogger so I can link to great blogs like yours!

Your painting is so nice, I can see your reflection in the balls. Nice painting. They really look like glass.
