Right side up, I’m Definitely all upside down today.

So the challenge this week is painting upside down.

Yes, I painted this upside down see below.  The trick was simplifying the shapes and getting correct value changes.  Something I can apply to painting reflections of creeks and water surfaces.

Here is today’s:  Balance Challenge.

Part of my new goal for 5 paintings a week is to work on the weekly paint challenges featured on daily paint works.  I am starting to loosen up a bit more to just let the paint express what shapes I see in my subjects and forms.   Tomorrow brings new challenges.
