Boxed & Bowed -sold

oil on canvas panel 6x6 inches

Here's my response to the current Daily Paintworks Challenge. I started with the yellow ribbon, taking my time to see all the value and color changes in each loop. Outlining just a bit here and there helped to distinguish them as loops rather than a clump of yellow stuff. The rest was surprisingly more difficult than the ribbon! It's a cheerful painting. Those up-swept ribbon ends seem to say TA-DA!

  1. Hi Karen, What a cheerful little painting!! I love it! You did a fantastic job on the ribbon, especially since yellow always seems to me like such a hard color to mix values of. It's wonderful!
