Art give-away! This Friday at noon

The last of four give-aways for August. The next series starts in October. This photo is of the tiny painting "Snowy Landscape" (it is a sticky warm day here today... so maybe this will be minor relief :-). It is 2.5x3.5 inches. I will ship this to the winner which will be drawn this Friday, August 31 at noon.

Here's the challenge: As many of you know, I start almost all of my paintings by spreading a color on the entire canvas first and then letting it dry before starting the actual painting. Question: What was that first color used in this painting? You may have to click on the photo to get a good look. All correct answers will go into "the hat". Post your answer here on the blog, OR send an email, OR get your name in the hat TWICE if you post a response on my facebook page "Rose Bryant Original Paintings". Good luck! I know you can do it :-).


  1. Magenta!?

  2. pink (oil not my forte hence the common name...)

  3. I should probably be disqualified for incorrectly spelling fuchsia!

  4. Thanks, everyone, for playing. Your answers all made it into the hat :-) and no one was kicked out for spelling (Renee). Have a great weekend!


love to hear from you!
