Dot Your Eyes-Portrait

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to The Polka-Dot Challenge at DPW posted by the extraordinary artist, Carol Marine .
Carol has done many paintings with polka-dots in them. So she invited us to join in the fun with a polka-dot painting of our own.
I have to admit, I enjoyed it! The transparent veil was a special challenge for me to try to simulate. Hope it comes across ok!

  1. This is a wonderful response to the challenge Dean. Very clever and yes, the veil reads perfectly!

  2. Hi Dean!... You've created a fresh and wonderfully coquettish feel to this piece ... veiled with intrigue and sauciness! HA HA!

    In a phrase... you have successfully polka dotted your "tease"! Couldn't resist my Friend!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  3. Dean, you are so good at these challenges! I saw this polka dot one and I couldn't really come up with an idea..I love what you chose and you painted it expertly! Congratulations!

  4. Une voilette subtile et magnifique pour juste masquer un regard mystérieux ou indiscret...
    Un défi bien relevé...
    gros bisous

  5. Exquisite, Dean! Love both her hat and your pov!

  6. Love it. Very whimsical and yes, the veil does come through.

  7. Love it. Very whimsical and yes, the veil does come through.

  8. Thank you, Dana! Nice to "see" you. Glad you see the veil.

  9. Hi, Bruce...always a pleasure to read your comments!
    I may have dotted the "tease"...bur at least I didn't cross my "eyes". Lol!

  10. Thanks, Celeste...Coming up with subjects is really a challenge for me on these challenges!
