Venice - soon
While I"m partly pleased with this, I tried more than four times to darken the water a bit but kept losing the highlights and/or the tone when I added one or the other -- so I left the water light and figured I'd try again next weekend.
Still, just painting scenes of Italy gets me excited about the trip (May) and what I'll be learning.
My forays by our creek were frustrating too -- The day was superb - even hot, with temperatures reaching 84F! Birds and peepers kept me company while I could hear C and his friends jamming from the house, but between balancing items on my lap, the heat keeping me constantly spritzing my paints, and the light distorting tones -- -- I was ready to toss it all into the water! LOL Ah well, we'l keep trying - at least it was some time spend in the woodlands and watching spring emerging.
Back to the office and regular routine. I hope YOUR week is less frustrating and that your creative endeavors flow smoothly!
