Persimmon Challenge

Persimmon with Doily
8 X 10
Oil on Hardboard

This is my submission to the new challenge at Paint and Draw Together.  I avoided this for a long time because I couldn't figure out how I could possibly paint a believable doily.  But I think I did ok.  I first painted the blue background with acrylic so I wouldn't have to wait a week for oil to dry.  ( I am not a patient person!).  Lela provides excellent quality photos for her challenges.  Give one a try!


  1. The doily is magical! My impatience would have me bungling this up royally! Nice crop too, Karla.

  2. Thanks! Sometimes I just never know til I try...and try...and try. :)
