6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

If you have ever visited Karen Appleton's blog you know how absolutely beautiful ribbons can be painted. If you haven't seen her blog click here. You will not be disappointed. Her paintings are exquisite. Having painted my first ribbon I can now fully appreciate how difficult all the values and twists and turns are to capture. So, kudos to you, Karen!

This was painted for Daily Painters International Art Gallery October challenge. Click here to see some wonderful paintings and if you are not familiar with this challenge you may want to participate in the one for November.


  1. did a great job of it--and I love the handle on the bag...great shadows too.

  2. Adorable cette dernière peinture avec ce magnifique ruban qui se sauve de ce petit paquet...
    J'aime beaucoup les rubans aussi... je vis dans une région de France où autrefois le ruban était l'honneur de celle-ci. Ma famille possédait des ateliers de passementerie et je voyais naître de merveilleux rubans de toutes les couleurs... Bisous

  3. Yes, I guess the ribbons are hard to paint, and yours are lovely, Linda!

  4. Linda, you are so so sweet!! Thank you so much for the link and your incredible compliment!!

    I LOVE your chocolate brown and green combination!!
    Thank you so much!

  5. This just ROCKS! What a great piece. Your colour palette is perfect.

  6. The ribbon makes me curious...what is in that purse? I enjoyed reading through your blogs this morning!
