The Raffle Tent

This is a study I have been working on from a very rough block in I did at North River Arts Festival of The Arts event. I need to practice doing crowds. I worked from a PHOTO of the block in and I've cropped my painting to show the best parts of it. Sometimes, as in this case, the details are better than the painting as a whole. Actually, they don't use the pink and white tents anymore, much to the chagrin of those of us who loved them. We have arrived in Naples and are settling in.

Love your use of color in this one! (It's making me wish it weren't single digit temps outside right now...please send a little warm weather up this way...) The pink and white tent is fantastic! I love the way you handled the crowd.

Hi Mary,

Your colors are really fabulous. Delicious. I know you'll find more of those glorious colors in Florida, now that you've taken leave of a very monochromatic New England.

Painting now in my mother's 1793 house is inspiring me to get modern and get bigger with the canvasses. But I think I'm toning down my colors in response to the wintere environment. Thanks for your lovely comment at my blog!

What a joyful picture. I love your blurry yet colourful crowd---I want them to come for all our big music events so I can go and not be scared.

Mary,
I think you for coming by Liquid Illuzion. The hub is for linking tributes to Suzanne on your blog.

Please write a post about her, and link it in the hub on her blog.

By the way, the paintings are beautiful.

Good job, Baby!

You could always "Ken Auster" the crowds - did you take that workshop? Glad to see you safely there and settling in.

I like this Mary! Crowds, for me, ohhh that would be hard, I need to practice drawing bodies.

I bet Naples is a lot more warmer. Glad you got there okay.
