A landscape- practical for a lesson
A farm near us
I did a lot of online lessons and a couple from books, trying to learn the technology and craft. The lesson practicals do not necessarily reflect my taste or style, but were merely tools to learn with.
From a Craftsy lesson, Waterviews. It turned out fairly well.
One of 3 paintings done of the same still life in 3 different palettes. Another Craftsy lesson.
An unfinished work from a Craftsy lesson. I realized that the artist’s style was too flamboyant for me, and didn’t finish it. Also I was very disappointed in how the background turned out. I may do this again, using my own preferred palette.
This one just turned out goofy. It was painted freehand, with no base drawing.
A beautiful setting which I was unable to capture to my satisfaction. I did this before doing the lessons in acrylic painting, so will have another go at it.
From a Craftsy lesson. I don’t like the intense background and would change that if I do another version.
From a book lesson. I think of this as “The Group of 7 goes to Arizona”
