Award Shortlist   


By magda_indigo  
My second entry to the June 'paint' competition.

I've painted as long as I can remember.
I always think if you are a creative it is never just in one field...

I photographed one of my paintings, 60x50, and inserted it, I was so surprised it actually matched the colours on my palette!
Some of the brushes I used belonged to my grandfather and father.
The painting is actually done completely with paletknife, my fave tool.
It can be viewed in mods, just for fun, because I don't paint anymore and this was one I want to keep.


BEST VIEWED LARGER for full visual pleasure...

Lovely. Just lovely. The colours are so vibrant, and the lighting and shadows on the palette give it a great sense of texture and depth. Luscious.

A surefire winner if you ask me....That will put the kiss of death on it....LOL
Console yourself with the fact I'm not entering this month's competition, due to the fact it's going to be far far to artistic and I wouldn't stand a cat in hells chance...LOL
