" ROOF TOPS "


8.5 x 7.5 Tempra

OK........... This was not my idea of a picture to paint and because I was fighting it I decided to do something more abstract.
But in the end I enjoyed myself.
This is for Different strokes From Different Folks the blog of Karin Jurick.

This is wonderful! I love those blue windows on the right hand side on the 'peach' building.

Claire said...

Dominique, you have done a fantastic job with this challenge - your colors are wonderful. I especially like your treatment of the windows - not too tight, but enough detail that there is no doubt about what they are. Very, very nice!

Thank you Dominique for your comment on my "green" entry for same challenge. Also not my idea of a fun challenge this time around, but I did it anyway. That all said, I love how your piece turned out and the removal of that front building. I think what I most see in your painting is the fun! The colors are great, and this looks like a place I'd rather like to be! That is such a nice feeling from what was a boring rooftop scene!

Candy Barr said...

Wow...fantastique...let er rip with the freedom. What a dicotomy between the stuffed animals on Tiffany's bed to this post. Multiple personalities?? I like em all. But the mystery in this one is so intriguing.

Thank you I appreciate your comment

Candy,
HA HA.... it's funny the things we do. I do like multiple styles. About more than one personality I think I'm complex but I believe just one of me is enough in there. Thanks for stopping by.
