Eggshell (Sold)


This is my entry for The DPW Painting Challenge posted by Ann Feldman.  Ann is a wonderfully talented artist, and I was excited to see this challenge.  I have such trouble with painting white in oils, so this was a great learning challenge for me.  And it was fun, too!

Thank you, Azra! Hey, I love the new photo of you! You're beautiful! It's nice to have a face to put with your sweet personality! :)

That is just beautiful Darla, I tried something in white today but got so frustrated that I painted over it! You did a great job with this challenge!

Sonya Johnson said...

You did a fantastic job with this challenge, Darla! The drawing part is impeccable in its execution as always, and the grays are spot-on for their values.

Way to go!

Thank you, Karen and Sonya!

Karen, it makes me feel better knowing that others struggle with whites, too. I appreciate your encouraging words! :)

Sonya, you're always so sweet. Thank you so much for your kind comments. I always appreciate your creative input. :)

This gorgeous! (and you are under-selling yourself on DPW.) Nice work, Darla.
