This was a fun collaboration using an image from a cycling friend of my husband. It was fun to know what I was going to paint before placing the webbing and spraying the concentrated watercolor pigments for a change. There was a lot more detail work to get this the way I wanted it to look. I extended the painting out as you can see from the background image to 11 x 14 but decided to crop it for the Challenge. I like both but the smaller image definitely puts the focus on the red boot. I liked the larger painting because it didn't place the boot in the center. What do you think?
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see. What else would you like to see here?.
