I think this is the best I will be able to do for photographing this one. I've been working on it for quite awhile and it's time to paint! This is the one I told you about yesterday that I was having trouble photographing. I think it's a little better. I still like the painting a lot better than my photo of it (probably a better situation than liking the photo better than the painting)!
The biggest challenge for me on this one was making the green leaves stand out (but not too much) against the green mountain. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
For those of you who read my intro to my challenge on the first day, you can skip the rest of this post and not miss anything. I kind of consider what is written below to be my "full disclosure" and may post it every day throughout this challenge:
Notice I did not say 30 Paintings in 30 Days in my Subject Line? Most of my artist blogger friends are doing a 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. I'm along for the ride, but my intention is to have 30 painting days in 30 days, not to complete 30 paintings in 30 days. I would LOVE to do 30 paintings in 30 days, but I quickly figured out last time that with my schedule, I would be placing myself under far too much stress to make myself do an actual 30 paintings. After all, I don't want to come out of the challenge hating the act of painting!
Leslie Saeta is once again the initiator of the challenge, and you can follow the challenge on her blog. Over 200 artists are participating. So many great things happened to me the last time I joined the challenge (read about it here), that I just couldn't resist saying "YES!" again."
