8x10 Acrylic on Canvas Board
Number 22 of the 30 in 30. This was another back to basics value lesson taken from the Art Tutor online ebook. This was a little more fun than the first couple of lessons, I guess because of the colors added. I had fun doing it, especially the clouds. However, I will be doing it again! This time I will add my own ideas, I'll correct the clouds with a little more softness, and certainly fix that non-melodious mountain, that blends into the shape of the trees. The photo reference does the same thing. In this one, I realized that I did what lots of artists do....copied a photo, instead of making art. I was concentrating on following directions and not missing some basics, that I fell into the trap of what nature was doing in the photo. Nature doesn't always know best, when it comes to a nice painting. Well, good thing the canvas board was cheap, and I have more! Stay turned for my version of this one a little later on.
