Puzzle Piece, The Assembled Painting

Below is the assembled Puzzle Piece painting. Top left painted by Sandy, top right painted by Ann, bottom left painted by Bonnie, and bottom right, painted by Delaney. I would say we didn't do too badly considering we all used different colors and did our best to draw our puzzle pieces to fit a certain size so they would line up pretty well. Another interesting note is that Delaney is in the 8th grade and is just learning to paint with watercolor. I think she did a tremendous job as she has only been painting a few months.

There is another puzzle piece painting in the works but this time the two teams will be painting the same photo but the photos have different color palettes. That should be interesting to see when they are posted next month.

What a great plan with wonderful results. We may steal the idea for our fall art show for my classes. So cool!

This is a very interesting idea and certainly turned out well. Some people can come up with the most creative ideas. And Delaney did a wonderful job!

Wow, they do match pretty well Ann, it's an interesting project, I'm curious how the one with differente palettes will look like

This turned out great! Four very different artists doing pieces that turned into a good painting - and Delay in the 8th grade is already a fine artist - wow, wonder what she will be doing in another couple of years!

I would say you all did wonderfully! Love the concept and the different types of art. I hope Delaney keeps at watercolour! Does everyone keep their own, or do they get sent to a predetermined person who can mount them all together?

Sandy, the plan and photo was Desiree's who is such a talented, creative artist. You would enjoy doing this I know.

Rhonda, thanks for the comments. Delaney is a lovely young lady and I'm looking forward to being around for her art journey.

Hi Deb, thanks for commenting and yes, we each keep our own painting and just send .jpegs to be posted in the group.

I hope Delaney keeps painting too and, I think she will as she appears to enjoy it so much.

Hi Deb Ward, thank you for looking at the blog and your comments. It was interesting and all those shapes was quite a challenge. Delaney has an eye for painting I think. :)

Hi Teresa, bet you thought I didn't see your comment.:) I must have been asleep at the computer. lol This next challenge will be interesting to view everyone's take on it. Need to get busy painting it too or the time will have passed and won't have anything to show!
