Stripe Challenge

This week the challenge is to use stripes in your work. From polka dots to stripes...........hmmmm.
My main emphasis was to find the shadows.  Now, did I forget those two or three little highlights I like to give a painting? Yes.

8 x 8, oil

Then I moved in closer as I like to do. Love the flower in shadow on the left. Great fun with a new tool, creating texture. Dark pattern, where is the dark pattern?

6 x 6, oil


  1. Helen, I love your painting for the challenge. The colors complement each other so well, and there is a freshness and delicacy to it. Well done!!

  2. Thank you Carol. These challenges keep us on our toes, don't they?
