Moses Botkin Monthly Challenge

Grab your pearls and put on your party dress! This was a fun challenge. I had to try a couple of different set ups and dresses, the first being a pale pink that was really difficult to paint. Having donated my daughter's other dressy dress, (she doesn't wear ANY dresses if she can help it and I don't have any party clothes) I ended up painting a Halloween costume which has a renaissance feel to it. It was fun. Might be something I want to paint again.

I love your choice of "models" for this month's Challenge, Robin! Well done.

Robin I love the way you so loosely painted this dress, it leaves a lot to the imagination and it makes me feel like it's a piece of chocolate candy with a creamy almond center!

oh, yes please use this as subject matter again! I love the attitude and personality of the dress, jaunty and full of life! beautifully done robin!

Just new to the blogging site, Robin and came across your work - it's really brilliant, vibrant and original. I paint in oils also but have only ever painted on linen with acrylics. I stuck the linen on board with PVA glue and then primed the board. It took loads of paint but the final result was good. Again, congrats on your beautiful work - Painterliz
