Day 20, 30 Day Challenge
SOLD ©Maggie Ruley 2013
After the my first attempt at fall going "all spring like" on me, I made sure I stayed in the red and orange family. This little 2 tree painting was started with a technique taught to me by artist Robert Burridge. You paint loosely on more than one image at a time, you use a lot of water, and move from frame to frame, trying not to spend too long in any one area. Then you begin to do some negative shape painting and simplify areas. Using a discarded mat as you work helps you isolate the painting and show you which areas need work.

I am having a give-away!
Here is how it works. Leave a comment on my post and you will be entered to win. I am going to give away one painting a week for the duration of the 30 Day Challenge, (the month of September, 2013). If you comment daily on my posts then you can be entered up to 7 times to win. The winner will have their choice of any unsold painting of the week.
Those of you who subscribe by e-mail to this blog can either reply to the e-mail, or comment and you will be entered.
Please note this drawing is going to be casual. I am not hiring any fancy auditing company to do the selection. It is going to be a plain old pieces of paper in a bowl thing.
If you are the winner your painting will be shipped to you after it has dried, which can take one to two weeks with oils
