Benefit time of the year

Time for Fifi to donate her art work for an event's invitation... it starts with this painting... from this sketch...
made into a negative effect...
then sepia...
and then greytoned /despeckled... and this is the choice of the committee...
Which would you pick... full colour, sepia, negative or greytone?

Hope you ENJOY your week and don't forget to visit other Metamorphosis Monday posts over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch... and other BLUE posts via Smiling Sal's! !

I enjoyed seeing the evolution of the invitation design. Fun to see several takes on the same pic.

I like the negative effect one but I agree it is fun to see the different treatments of one idea. Happy Blue Monday.

Frau said...

Love them all, first choice would be negative color than sepia followed by grey and then the color. Happy New Year!

Oooo , Fifi,
I can't choose between the sepia and the greytoned one.
They all look great so, I don't think that it will matter !! XXXX

That's a tough choice...I like them all. I think the negative effect is very interesting but I would probably choose the full color.

Cindy said...

It's nice to see all of your variations of the one print.
Very nice.

I would always choose the real color, Fifi. I love to see green trees, especially palms. Happy Blue Monday.

I love them all, Fifi, but the best is your signature colored painting.

I would Definitely pick the color.

Blue Muse said...

Happy New Year dear Fifi!!
I was just playing with color, too! We're on the same wavelength, sister-friend.
I love them ALL - different moods of the same beautiful scene. If I had to choose only one, I'd say the sepia!

Fifi, I always enjoy your work! In this group, I especially liked the negative coloration as it was quite edgy for something that you would do. Your color paintings are always a favorite though.

Linda said...

Full color would be my choice but they are all wonderful. You are so talented.

Manang Kim said...

Oh Fifi,
They are all so lovely. I really like the color one the best, I think?
Thanks for sharing such great talent with us.

Lori E said...

I guess it depends on where it is going. I love the color/negative effect but the sepia is my second choice.

Mary said...

They all have something to commend them, but my favorite is the one in sepia. Have a great Blue Monday.

Atticmag said...

Allo Fifi!
Would definitely pick the negative version. That's my home street ya got there, just farther down the blocks. Love that illustration. It has the feel of true LA shopping frenzy. Jane F.

Blessings to you for the rest of the week .

Carrie said...

I prefer the original painting and also the sepia since the brown tones look natural with the palms.

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Fifi,

They are all wonderful, but my favourites would be the full colour and the grey tone.

Happy week

I LOVE it!! What a terrific idea. I have to file this one away in my mental rolodex for when the charity I volunteer at needs their next fundraiser invite.

that's all said...

FULL COLOUR! ALWAYS :)

sealaura said...

love this. have you ever done any paintings of palm springs? the palms in this painting reminded me of the main drag in palm springs. i love it there and it kind of reminds me of BH or vice versa.
