"Having Fun With Red & Green"


When I was asked if I would like to donate one of my pieces to Nationals this year to be included in the silent auction my response naturally was "yes". I had previously taken some pictures of a green apple on a red plate and decided to do one of those. I think I really wanted to play around with red and green. Anyway, I had fun and I was very pleased with how the piece turned out. Now the photography is not too great, it looks a little blurry to me. Since I was having fun with red & green I thought that would make a neat title. It was done on Uart sand paper, 800 grit, with Prismacolors and blended with the brush. It measures 10 3/4 x 6 7/8.

beautiful Linda!

May I ask what grit you like with the UART paper?

Hi Nicole and thanks...I guess I should post that...I prefer the 800grit. It's absolutely divine...the most amazing surface I've ever worked on.

This would look really super hanging in my home....I'm thinking I'm going to have to save big dollars for this one.

Thanks Linda!

THANK YOU Linda! I've been experimenting with them and its funny, I am really enjoying the 400 grit! OK I'll have to get myself to try the 800.
