LITTLE LANDSCAPE


Painting this on 300# paper made it easier to paint, I think.  The brush can skip over the paper and leave some lights here and there.  I still need to return and get some lights in the violet rows but that won't be hard. This was from a PaintMyPhoto challenge for the month of May = painting a complementary landscape.  My complements I tried to keep yellow/green and violet.  There is even violet in the sky but the photo isn't showing it as much.

This is so lovely, Rhonda! If this is indicative, you just cannot say you aren't good at landscapes any longer!

Thank you all so much, Debbie, Sherry, Lisa, Victoria and Jan! This one was chosen due to the fact that I thought it might just paint itself! ha ha
