I have been procrastinating about painting a scene on a large canvas board. I worry about getting the proportions and colours right.
I decided it had to be done before I depart for my holiday on February 11th.
This morning I took the plunge and got stuck into it.
I saved the subject photo as a screen saver on my computer
I did about 5 art classes early 2019. Since then it has been self directed learning and getting some tips from fellow bloggers and of course the internet. I have to remind myself that I am not a professional painter and cannot expect perfection. I also have to remind myself that my painting does not have to be exactly the same as the photo and I am allowed to adapt it to suit myself. Self Expression.
Here is my painting so far
I am happy with this. While this is drying I will practice drawing the church on scraps of paper. The snow and bushes will be easy to do.
February 3rd…I have been working on the painting off and on today. Still a bit more do with bushes etc and some fine details on the church.
I will finish it by the end of this week.
Masterpiece finished. It might look a tad too busy and a bit out of proportion but it’s for my pleasure and I like it.
