challenge 25

Once again I've relied on my stash of old photos to provide a challenge. I have to say I've always liked this photo but never considered painting it until now. It's high on drama and although there's plenty of detail available, I'm counting on using the squint method to allow me to practice with my oils and not go too crazy trying to get every crack in each tree.

Enjoy, as always! Challenge twenty-five is due by midnight Monday, August 15th.

challenge 24

Taken from our room at the historic Seelbach in downtown Louisville, this shot interested me from the start because of its inclusion of hard and soft, light and dark. I hope to go back there someday and take more shots of the interior, as it is truly a grand hotel.

Challenge 24 submissions are due by midnight, Monday June 27th.
