September mushrooms



Pin It
Wow, it's September already. Time sure flies.
The artists helping artists blog is starting a new monthly challenge and this is my entry for this month.
I always wanted to do a painting with these colorful mushrooms and this was a perfect occasion to bring out my tube of cadmium red :)

Hey Erik, good to "meet" you. This is a nice piece. I like all the rich colours you have in the leaves and the way you've handled the whites in the stems.

Erik said...

Thanks Kim, nice to meet you too.
Really like your entry in the 'challenge'.
