Moses Botkin Monthly Challenge

This month's challenge was a yellow flower and blue vase. Though at the beginning I wasn't sure if it was that or just a yellow and blue limited palette. So I chose the flowers, and did it with only yellow, blue and white. I also aimed for the most intense colors I could get, pretty much straight out of the tube. I wish I had gone more abstracted though.

Once again, beautiful images created by my fellow painters. I can't believe the detail that Jeanne gets. I would go crazy! Suzanne's painting makes me feel like I am sitting at the edge of a pool, its so refreshing.

Robin, I absolutely LOVE this. the shapes of the flower and vase fit so well and are so solid and your paint strokes always make me happy. Bold and direct. It's just lovely. And thank you for your kind words about mine! I appreciate it so much. Enjoy the weekend.
