Resting from Rowing – DSDF challenge

Filed under: boat, dsdf, rowing, watercolor painting — laurenmaurerartworks @ 3:04 pm

Here is my last submission to DSDF. I was glad to take a break from the painting that I’ve been working on to try this one out. Boats are my very favorite thing to paint, so I had fun with it – The lady in the boat, however, not so much… I did this painting as a 5×7, so her little face was difficult. I think it looks a bit squashed up, but I has happy with how the rest of the painting came out. I didn’t want to mess with it too much or she would have mud face and that is never fun.

  2. i would never have know that you struggled with the lady in the boat….i think she's fabulous! and besides, if i were out rowing a boat (by myself!!) i have no doubt that my face would definitely be squashed up….which is always better than a mud face! great job lauren!! 🙂

  5. I like the intensity you captured in the water! I'm with you; I love painting boats but people aren't a subject I approach often at all and I always find it challenging.

  6. 5×7!!! any smaller, you could have entered the miniature painting competitions! Tremendous job Lauren. I love the water and ripples.

  7. Hi Lauren, I know what you mean about those small figures in small compositions, almost impossible to paint. You've done a great job here, I especially like the way you handled the water. Thanks for visiting my blog, I appreciate it.
