J for the artists

Well we are 10 weeks underway in our ABC challenge and that brings us to 'J'. A lovely drawing of a jar containing a nice composition of leaves is our first piece from our contributing artists. The next painting is of a Jaguar and although I was expecting to see a spotted cat, it was a sporty red car! The artist lamented that she would 'never paint another car'. This has been an interesting side to the challenge, in that we are trying subjects that are taking us out of our comfort zone and the very reason it is named a 'challenge'. Some subjects look easier than they actually are but the main thing is each artist is taking up the challenge and completing a small piece each week. The next painting has really captured the lovely softness, especially in the eyes, of the jersey cow, this is 'Jessie the jersey'.
