Bob Lobster on Leather Chair, 6 x 6"

 

I painted this in response to Carol Marine's latest challenge on this week's Daily Paintworks website. Click "Daily Paintworks" to see what others have submitted.

Each brushstroke was supposed to be a new color. I started off well. Really well. I was having a great time when I suddenly noticed my brush had stroked my painting more than once with the SAME color! It was a challenge, surprise, surprise; one I hope to try again on my own.

The hat is from Bob Lobster, a small restaurant in Newbury, on the way to Plum Island. I've painted in the area and eaten there—yum! I can't wait to go back when spring is in full swing.

You picked a complex subject for the challenge but you handled it beautifully. The red of the hat and the red of the highlight on the leather chair read so well. Actually there is a lot more that works so well, congrats!
