Well I worked very hard yesterday, on my painting of Crayfish Creek and some of last night, purely for touch ups and (I think) I have finally finished my very first landscape! Hooray!
Yesterday morning I had already painted the sky and later added the waves (which I did on pure whim and came to later regret)... the waves ended up changing the entire scene and the sky looked so wrong! You wouldn't think it but little changes really can impact a painting and I learnt that the hard way! So... I had to go back and redo the sky... I believe the waves were a blessing in disguise because I much prefer the horizon now.
I'm still not positive on the waves though... I really believed I had completely ruined the painting after I had added them. When my Andi got home though he quite liked the waves and after a few touch ups to them I am happier.
You guys TOTALLY should leave a comment and tell me what you think! Is it good enough now, perfect or should I go back for more touch ups or butcher the whole thing?
On a totally unrelated note I thought I would share with you a couple of snaps I took while on my walk today... just because I loved the view!
Isn't it beautiful? No where near close enough to the water for my liking though. But I just love being able to catch snippets of it through the trees while being on the hill. Gorgeous.
I'd also like to say a big "HELLO" to all my followers and thank you sooo much for sticking around! As you all probably know I'm still very new to the blogging world and I'm just working out the place. So I thank you for thinking I'm awesome enough for your precious time.
But I will reiterate... please please please give me some feedback on my painting! I'd love to hear your thoughts whether they be big or small. Also... I have not received nearly enough advice on my last post as to what I should
make let Andi by me for our anniversary... come on girls! Hop to it! What's on your wish list?
