Back to Basics

Well after the many attempts of new paintings within the past couple of weeks, I had the urge to paint a landscape. I haven’t made a “traditional” landscape painting since the beginning of art school (so about 5 years ago) and thought why not give it a shot. I forgot the challenge painting scenery can be for me. I am bringing back some skills of mixing colours, perspectives and shadows and have remembered the joy and the satisfying feeling I get from it.

Perhaps this is a new journey for my art. I am fortunate to live in a beautiful area full of inspiring scenery that I should showcase. I can see some areas that need to be improved in this painting, however, after a 5 year break from painting landscapes like this, I don’t think it looks that bad!

So what do you think? I love hearing your comments, so keep them coming!
