6"x6" oil on panel

Great, Edward. You took the smart route and focussed. I took the long route and cussed. Pulled enough hairs to make another wig.

Dana Cooper Fine Art said...

Nice job Edward! I really like the title too!! It will be fun to see what people are doing with this challenge in particular, without any influence from seeing other artists' work.

maria said...

Edward, you did a nice job of planning, editing and painting! This was a fun project.

Carrie Griesemer said...

Nice job on the wigs, I like the name too!

Kathleen Coy said...

This turned out great Edward! I'm not sure if I will get mine done in time...

Diane Morgan said...

Thanks for the comment about my "sold". It's all very exciting. Lots of good stuff going on these days. Sugar and Spice is perfect. Great as always. Gotta get crackin' and get mine wigs done. Yikes, it's almost Wednesday.

Camille LaRue Olsen said...

I like it, Edward. I like the use of green in unexpected places like the lips :) I still haven't started but I think I got it cropped like I'll want it and will start in the next day or two, I hope!

Carol Horzempa said...

Really nice job Edward, and good choice of colors for "Sugar and Spice."

Kim VanDerhoek said...

Well done! I agree with Dana, you edited it down very well. The photo had so much going on in it but you've managed to create a successful painting.

sugar and spice are great.
Hopefully I'll get mine done

Sheila said...

Great job Edward! [as always] I like how you choose these particular 'dummies' and rendered them so they have new life! They went from kitschy to something rather pretty!

Peggy Montano & Paintings said...

Great job Edward. I wish I had had the vision to crop but each one kept saying 'paint me"
I went for it.

Jala Pfaff said...

Ha, this is hilarious! I love how you did the redhead!!!

Dean H. said...

Super painting, Edward! I like how they appear so classy...mannequins, but expensive ones. And they LOOK like mannequins...mine tended to look like distorted real humans.

Kari Tirrell said...

Very nice, Edward!

Amanda Carder said...

Thanks so much for your comment! I thought yours was one of the best! Great as always!
I have so enjoyed painting this for one that I almost shied away from!!

adebanji said...

Interesting piece and really interesting title!

gringo zero said...

Oh, yeah!
I really dig how you isolated just these two and bravely cropped the red-head. Great depth and bold tones.

sam said...

Well done Edward, amazing how you all have such different takes on the photo. This is where your creativity come in right? Great job:)

Angela Elledge said...

Hello Edward - Love the warm colors here and the way you isolated these two gals. This was fun, but I can honestly say I am looking forward to something "less mannequinish"!

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

Ah! I had hoped not to see anyone else's take on this before I tried it today... but yours is really good! I like how it's narrowed in focus to two of the heads, but not portrait-like.

Gwen Bell said...

I really like what you did with the assignment...they actually look pretty instead of creepy. Great colors!

Vern Schwarz said...

Real nice job Edward. Love the red background.

Mona said...

benjaminlois said...

r garriott said...

Edward, I always look forward to seeing what you do with these challnges; you set the bar high for us mere mortals.

The red/green color structure is wonderful in this!

Cathyann said...

Nice work, Edward. Realistic. I like the dark haired mannequin, but then I am biased...is she sugar?LOL Great title.

Ann Gorbett said...

Hi Edward. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your wig painting is stellar. What a fun challenge that was. I'm still trying to get inspired by the sushi, you?

LSaeta said...

Edward,
Thanks for visiting my blog! I love your work, and I love your "wig" painting. There is something about the mannequin on the left that really strikes me! Have you started painting sushi?

CONRAD said...
