The Critique

I decided to take a leap out of my comfort zone and submit “Waiting for Recital” to the Daily Paintworks Critique Me challenge.

The comments made me think, and motivated me to rework the painting. Here’s the new version:


Waiting for Recital

This is my youngest granddaughter. She was waiting her turn for recital photos. We doubt she will dance in the recital because she freezes when anyone new watches her. She says she freezes because she gets ne-ves.

Painted for the Virtual Paintout. The location for May was the French Riviera. I couldn't submit it to the Virtual Paintout because the link to the location I sent myself just shows my screenshot momentarily and then links to somewhere in central France. Bummer.

Update: I managed to find the spot I painted and submitted to VP. Next time I think I will check the links as I send them to myself. Sheesh.

I haven't painted in a while so I decided to start again with challenges. This is for a DPW paint a vegetable challenge.
