I’ve been awol lately- a series of things, such as a lost cat, a bad reaction to antibiotics a,d life in general kept me away from my studio for a while, and when I went back to painting I felt as though I was doing everything wrong!
I’d hoped to get back in the swing and be able to post something successful with my mistakes, but there just isn’t time before I go to Turkey later today, so here we are.
The finished version of the virtual paintout Norway scene (which I may not have time to post over there.
A scene from Brittany. This one is all wrong because I failed to tie the shadow area into the sunny are at all, among other things. Making mistakes and learning from them is what this project is all about, right?
and here’s my old friend – that awful bare tree that’s been taunting me for weeks. I tried again, and had success with mixing the colors ahead, as suggested by Richard Robinson, my new guru, but am still struggling with a compromise between detail and overall form. When I get back from my trip I’ll go out and paint it from life, but it already is starting to have leaves on it….
I’d never have posted this, but I just have no time to do another one.
So that’s 16, 17 and 18!
Now, off to finish last minute packing – I’m leaving for Turkey in a few hours!
