Challenge landscape

This is my painting for the Different Strokes from Different Folks Challenge. I did this one using water based oils. Not sure I really like using them but they are ok to play with.

New painting series: "Quilter's Hands"

Finished these paintings over the last 2 weeks. I have more to paint in this series but I have some other painting projects I want to finish first and possibly use a different medium in the next part of the series. These 2 I used Acrylic under painting, oil bar Paint sticks and some color pencil. The second picture does not show the teal color in the clothing and I couldn't get my scanner program to get it correct unless it changed all the other colors. The quilt color in the 2nd painting is, also, more purple than blue, again scanner program could not get it correct. But at least it does show what I've partly been up to recently. These 2 paintings are schedules as gifts.
