I really do have a long way to go! lol. I painted the hills brown initally applying an acrylic wash with the reds and mustardy colours. It's the first time I have used a wash in a real painting (not an assignment)and I am kinda pleased with the result. The hardest thing about comissioned work is not painting something I am in love with, it's a painting for someone else so me liking it is almost irrelevant! Not that I don't - I just don't usually volunteer myself to do buildings let along 20+ of them!There's 13 in this cluster. Having said that I think I will be spending enough time on this to bond with it:)
The first of December today...I'll have this finished by the 7th. If I don't eat, sleep or do house work! Just joking- painting, regardless of what it is of is a labour of love!
