"Crossing Over #2"
Oil on Canvas 14"x16"
This is number 3 of the Leslie Saeta 30 in 30 Day Challenge. I did this painting in a large full sheet Yupo with Alcohol Ink and decided to try it in oils. I've painted this bridge no less than 4-5 times. First, I had the perspective wrong. Then, I had the colors and lighting wrong. I've toned down the water and still will do a bit more. The bridge is more to my liking, and I've changed the tree in the foreground quite a bit, adding some texture. I worked on the sky to give it more of an atmospheric look, and overall I'm liking it more and more. I welcome any suggestions that you might have. I've been painting in oils for about 8 months, so have lots to learn.
