Painting - House by the Lake
so.... this is what i have been doing for the last 11 hours... yes.... 11 hours lol. way way outside my comfort zone, i was curious as to whether it was possible. i learnt so much and there's so much more to learn. I reckon the paintbrush is a very mysterious thing and depending on how it is used it could do great things but it's still a puzzle to me. Part of me wished someone could show me how to do all the neat things a paintbrush could do.. i'm feeling more in awe of the great painting masters like Turner and Blake, Leonardo and Michaelangelo.. etc etc.
I didn't know you could draw a picture using a paintbrush.. a lot of the process in this painting really freaked me out. i didn't know it was possible to paint reflections in the water or that the water could look transparent? translucent?? and painting the tree branches was really scary lol. there's lots to work on but i'm pretty happy with what i did today. dont think i'll be in a hurry to paint another scenery for a while though.. maybe i'll go do something messy now like collage.
You can click the picture and it'll bring up a bigger version of it. :o)
