Answer #4: A Painting in 4 Stages

For Painting Giveaway #4 I asked you what was the name of the finished painting that started off looking like this first picture:

Although it might not seem like it, I knew what the finished painting would look like at this stage.

And for those who thought it looked like a map, specifically of Australia, you weren’t a million miles away. You were thousands.

Yes, that’s Genoa. So the winning answer was the 16th answer submitted, and that came from Siobhan.

Congratulations! I’ll drop you an email to make sure, but you can go ahead and choose a painting from the prizepool.

Note that the paintings in the prizepool vary greatly in size - from 20×16 inches down to 3×2 inches. I plan to add brand new paintings to it in time for the next giveaway, and ultimately to grow it up to between 50 and 100 paintings.

I really enjoyed this particular giveaway competition, so I plan to do more just like it. Keep an eye on Bicyclistic to spot the giveaways when they occur.

    Anyway, now you’ll have a better idea for the next one!

    Very nice. I like your work.
