Well had a bit of a let down I think after finishing my last picture and have gone several days without the desire or energy to get back to work. Pretty back when I'd rather clean or do garden closing work. I do have a portrait in process, but want to be sure I have enthusiasm and energy when I work on it.
So today I finally got geared up to try a real landscape with sky and water, the double whammy. I like the sky, the bottom part of the picture is suspect at best. Anyway, it is a start and I will continue to try and try again.
This is on Artagain paper. Thought I'd try to do paper until I get my feel back a bit and then try out some of the Pastel board that I got. I am surprised at how many layers the Artagain will take, even though it has a pretty smooth surface, might be because it is recycled. I kind of am fascinated with the clouds so might try to concentrate on them a bit. Would like to get them light and fluffy. Downloaded several potential landscapes this morning so am going to try to work through them and again, hope to see some improvement between now and the end.
Thanks much for stopping by - today is supposed to be our last day of almost 90 and by Saturday we don't get out of the 60s. So as usual for us it's air condition this afternoon and heat in the morning!!
