Something new for me


Well, I did something for the first time ... I entered  The DPW Painting Challenge! - The Chicken Challenges, and had fun sketching a chicken. Out of my comfort zone, and into the fray. Gulp! What the cluck!

Saw this over at DPW ....had to come over and comment. Love the loose and freshness of this piece. Enjoyed looking at your work to. Happy painting Dee!

Thanks, Julie, I just love your chickie, too! I love that it's watercolor and you got such good contrasts, and kept it so fresh. I should have done more with my background.

I have "watched" the Challenge, and finally decided to jump in. I look forward to more challenges!

This is so fun! Made me smile a lot - good for you jumping out of your comfort zone and creating something so whimsical.

Thanks, Rhonda! I am still "feeling my way around" the blogosphere. Everyone out there is so good!

My chicken looks as if she could use more contrast [ amongst the rest of the challengers] but she looks better in real time than on the net ... Too pale!

I like your new "avatar" photo.

This chicken is just hilarious, a gorgeous painting.

Thanks, Jane, He/she [?] was fun! I entered him in the Chicken Challenge on the Daily Paintworks site. I had to do it fast, and enter it before I "chickened" out!
