Carol's Challenge 5x7 Oil

$100 & $!) S&H






This is my entry for Carol Marine's new Daily Paintworks Challenge.  I've only painted a car a couple of times before and I find them so difficult!  My very first painting workshop was with the late, great, Charles Sovek, and when I told him I was not fond of painting boats he said "Then you should paint cars - a LOT of cars!"  Very funny.  But he was, of course, right.  There are some very, very fine submissions to this Challenge, which was only posted a couple of days ago.  It will be very exciting!

Also, my very own, Boston-based Challenge group has posted our monthly response to the topic of... WINTER.  You can imagine we had a lot of reference materials....  check it out!  Below, my submission for that!

  1. Good for you for accepting the challenge of painting something that is hard to do!

    I love your Winter challenge painting...beautiful cold shadows with a warm light on the snow. Looks like either early morning or late afternoon. The light may be warm, but it definitely is a cold winter day. Well done.

  8. Great job on the car. Love the brighter blues. I want to get around to this challenge but it may not happen this time. Love your interpretation.

  9. Oh, oh... cars instead of donuts or cupcakes. Metal is surely a challenge and less fattening Kelley. Nice job!

  10. Kelley, I think that your motto is,
    "fear no subject"! It certainly shows. This looked like a challenge, and you conquered it! Congratulations,a job well done!
