I have been working on this one for a while. This is the largest size that I do, would like to go bigger, but for now this is big enough.
I was considering to show a painting with the same theme in my easter exhibition, but that one isn't for sale (hanging in my living room), but decided that it was a waste of an opportunity and did this one to exhibit instead.
I am pleased about how the painting turned out, but am going to photograph it again, as soon as I have figured out where and how to photograph paintings in our new house.
This is one of my smaller landscape paintings. I know that it isn't that small, but I don't like going too small, doesn't fit my style of painting. I can go smaller, but I really have to be in the right frame of mind.
This is a larger painting that gave me trouble. I'm not sure if it was the initial composition or the way that I approached the front and back of the original landscape, but it felt disconnected, like the top half of the painting belonged to a different painting.
The bottom half was much rougher than the top and I decided to rework the top half and this is the result. I am glad that I went for it and didn't settle for something that was average at best.
I did have something else in mind with the lower part of this painting, but I couldn't make it work, so I had to use my own intuition. Some things look great in a picture (real life), but it doesn't mean that it translate in a good way when painting it.
After a few wipes it was time to slow things down and not rush it. I am pleased with this medium size landscape, but I had to work for it. I am not in the zone yet. I just have to remind myself to slow down, not over think things and have fun.
