Third and final go at the Daily Paintworks challenge to paint a white object on a patterned ground.
I do love patterned fabrics and papers, but, while I've accumulated a number of each, I rarely paint them ... Must be laziness: the idea of putting in the work to reproduce the pattern puts me off, or maybe it's the time it would take--I think that's it. I'm shorter than usual on time lately: I work for myself and so work a lot (and when I have no work then I spend all my time worrying about having no work!) ... the dog's old and sick, the yard's a wreck, and I'm tearing up the living room and dining room floors.

Excellent study, laura! How well the whites contrast with the patterns!

So YOU had the probs and now YOU have the solutions--which leaves the rest of us HAPPILY free to marvel at the results! I love yesterday's bottom one most, I think because the blacks are somehow "softer"--but still black enough without taking over. And that pattern is a real knockout--looks like a Marimekko?

I love the patterns, and how they're reflected in the white pot in various ways. I used to enjoy painting patterns too but now can't find time or energy (got the old dog, the wrecked yard and erratic work demands)- in fact to paint anything! Glad you've sorted out your techie problems!
