Copper-bottom Kind of

Doodlewash prompt Copper-bottom.

I confess. This one is a stretch. But the colors in the shadow are kind of coppery so I’m going for it!

There was something I was trying to do with this painting. Then I got interrupted and when I came back, I couldn’t remember what it was. They say the mind is the first thing to go, and this is a situation where mine definitely got up and went.

I don’t really think it’s quite finished, but I’ve set it aside in case I ever remember what my purpose was.

  1. Absolutely love this one – seems simple at first glance, a vase of flowers against a patterned wall. But that shadow is its own element, as if its life force emerges from a different spirit. The range of dark and light blues in the flower is quite lovely. Well done! Have you thought of doing a series of similar scenes?

  2. hahaha! you sound like me! too much to do. I do love what you did, though. I still have hopes that one day I may be able to do something similar but a whole lot less. hahaha! ❤

  3. I absolutely love this…such a bright, happy scene! I have been down for the last 3 months while recuperating from Achilles tendon repair surgery and still not quite up to snuff, so this picture really lifted me out of myself. Beautiful colors!

  4. I just adore it, so beautiful, colourful, joyful and loose not too constricted. I love art that is free and implies movement and colour. Thank you so very much for posting this. I am visually impaired so typing this is a nightmare as my voice to text doesn’t seem to work well with a cockney/Scottish/Australian accent and I often get very bad alphabetic rubbish! So I got my old laptop so I can feel the keys.
    Please post more colour is such a wonderful thing and this stopped me in my tracks so I look forward to more.
    One day I will get brave and ask my other half to photograph and print but I’m not in your league.
    Hugs x

  5. Yummy! Being greeted by this, watercolor or actual vase, definitely would put a smile on one’s face and a lilt in their step.

  6. This is wonderful Sandra! I’m sorry for your interruption as I’m sure your intentions would have been equally awesome … but this turned out fantastic just as it is! I very much like the flower and the gradation of shading you’ve accomplished! ❤️👏🏻

    1. Sorry I have replied but I read your answer. I agree plus there aren’t really mistakes as every piece stands on it’s merit but is it easy to be critical of our own work especially if it isn’t perfect in our mind when it can create our best work. I’m visually impaired but to keep me going forward each week my grand daughters give me a 15 minute challenge. I don’t know what it is until they get here and I can’t even get my materials before I start.
      It has completely changed my perspective. I don’t know why except maybe I don’t have time to stand back and criticque, but some of my best work now is in my challenge.
      Long winded reply to say it is a beautiful picture and the colours drew my in. Phew!
