For different reasons...



Twee schilderijen die niet op mijn blog kwamen tot nu dan, om verschillende redenen.
De eerste is schaap nr. 1, een uitprobeerversie van schaap nr. 2 die wel op mijn blog kwam. Ik besloot nr. 2 in zachtere kleuren te schilderen, maar hoe meer ik naar nr. 2 kijk, hoe leuker ik haar vind. Wat vind jij?
Het tweede schilderij kwam niet op mijn blog, omdat het s.s.o. is (het saaiste schilderij ooit)... :)


Two paintings that did not make it to my blog till now, for different reasons.
The first one is sheep nr. 1, a trial version of sheep nr. 2 that did make it to my blog. I decided to paint nr. 2 in softer colours, but the more I look at nr. 1 the more I like her. What do you think?
I did not post the second painting because it is m.b.p.e. (the most boring painting ever)... :)

The first subject I feel successful!
The boredom of the second subject (very well done as vegetables!) is the background.
Color(maybe some darks areas) will creates a change of rhythm!I hope my idea is useful for you!Ciao,Rita.

Judy said...

Thank you, Rita, I just wanted to show you a few paintings from my 'maybe' pile.

Grazie mille, Simo!

Ma chère Judy, j'apprécie que vous nous montriez votre travail...
Ce mouton est parfait... Vous avez magnifiquement capturé son regard...
L'aquarelle avec les petits légumes tout "trognons" qui semblent danser une farandole, je sera de l'avis de Rita aussi. Ils méritent mieux ! Aimeriez-vous danser dans une pièce sans lampion ?!! Alors jetez-vous à l'eau! Osez!...
Vous avez beaucoup de talent.
Gros bisous

The sheep is great. It has form and depth. The vegetables do not--increase contrasts.

Anns Art said...

I like sheep#1 too, but then I liked the other one as well. This one is bolder, you certainly manage to control the lights and darks very well. I like the vegetables because of the Colour you have used, again you have achieved the dash of light.

Cynthia Schelzig said...

you crack me up with m.b.p.e. I must remember that! I love the bah,bah,bah,,,,(beautiful sheep) the veggies just need more contrast so that it can leave the m.b.p.e. painting pile and become one of your many beloved masterpieces:) You don´t want to know how BIG my m.b.p.e. pile is...don´t ask........

:) Hallo Judy :) Jou schilderijen spreken altijd. Dat doen beide schapen ook. Het 2e schilderij zegt niet zoveel. Het onderwerp vind ik niet zo bij jou passen. Maar als je ze echt niet saaier hebt...dan valt het nog wel mee hoor! Lieve groetjes:)

Judy said...

Merci Martine, I like that you see the vegetables dancing! :)

Thank you Linda! I don't think anything I do will make it less boring! :) Maybe I'll try another painting of them some day.

Hi Ann, thank you! There is not very much wrong with them, just boring.

Hi Cyn, glad you had a good laugh, so did I! :)) Some paintings are beyond saving!

Hoi Renate! Het is gewoon een nietszeggend onderwerp! :)) Ze waren lekker, dat is alles wat ik erover kan zeggen. :)

So many people said before me the second one must have more contrast. So you will see how beautiful this is. the first one, your sheep is marvelous. So handsome tp paint this colors, really great.
Lovely greet

Hi Judy. My vote is for sheep #2. She seems more "sheep-like" :)

minnemie said...

I love your work! Found you through Linda Roth's site. The sheep really caught my attention.

Betty said...

I like the sheep, there's nothing wrong with the vegetables, they might look more interesting with something else in the picture like a spade and some earth or a collander and knife. I think you are very brave to show the ones you didn't feel pleased with - I screw mine up and throw them away very quickly!

Pat said...

Your sheep is lovely, such character!

John Simlett said...

The sheep get's the vote ... the sheep got curly fleece from eating vegetables ...so vegetables comes a close second :0))

Michael Bailey said...

Hi Judy! Sheep1 is gorgeous, as was Sheep2, both almost three dimensional! The MBPE award sounds fun, but I bet I could win more than you.Your entry is lovely ... and far too interesting to even be in the running :)

Sandra said...

Your post made me chuckle! Your sheep 1 is most definitely not boring. He is completely gorgeous! The shadows in his coat are very effective. And I love your Turnips too :0)

Tito said...

To me, both sheeps are gorgeous and very well painted. The second one seems not yet finished, but I would not say that is far from a m.b.p.e.
Ciao Judy!

Judy said...

Marja, Sonia, Kathryn, Minnemie (welcome!), Betty, Pat, John, Michael, Sandra, Tito: thank you all so much! It's so nice to read all your opinions!
The next time I eat turnips, I'll paint a more exiting painting, I hope. :)

Anamaria do Val said...

I prefer the other sheep, although this one has more life in his eye! Second painting looks a little boring for me, too. I think it's because of the background colour... but it's interesting to post them, I like to see them. Wish you a nice sunday, Judy!

Ingrid Ormestad said...

As you know I love to paint 'sheep' and I think yours is just gorgeous! I have recently painted some fruit and I find your vegetables very nice indeed! :)

Irina said...

I know this mista, he lives in Russian showbiz, very popular one)).
Your drawing and watercoloring are amazing and look so easy to do, ha-ha...

AtelierBrigitte said...

Dat schaap is goed gelukt, vooral door de wat donkere achtergrond waardoor de kop naar voren komt.

Ik vind de schapenkop er prachtig uitzien ik schilder zelf ook maar op een hechtere manier je site ziet er prachtig uit succes ermee groetjes Danielle
