Bills Challenge - Outside The Cottage
It was a quiet Father's Day yesterday - leaving me enough time to rest and to paint. I decided to give Bill's challenge a try (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lorus_maver/3646005065/) since our next weekend is going to be rather busy.
This photo posed a number of challenges - lots of foreground detail, greens of all kinds, white flowers, the contrast of red poppies, and a low horizon line. I used several of my own poppy photos to vary and add to the flowers, some negative painting of the dasies, and masking fluid to get in the background trees - fun! Thanks once more, Bill!
I also tried uploading my husband's video -- after 8 hours I gave up, but will try again today from a better IT connection.
In the meantime, a friend sent a video clip she took of Charles and her husband while they were at Jam Camp:
It'll be another busy week but one with a few out of the office kinds of things which helps break up the day!
Have a great one!
