Soon...

I am heading off to watercolor right now...hope I have something lovely to post upon my return...just putting this up as a placeholder!

Back!

So I took this photo of a lovely gate in St. George's:

 And here's my start (the photo is very dark of the pairing...it's not so sepia-colored)...

I am already off...Perspective, everything. I may finish and then do it again, working to correct my lines.

Also, the print of the photo from my machine does no justice to the photo...so I am trying to justify an iPad for my photos...hah. I'll try anything....

If I finish, I'll add the finished painting to this post.
In other painting news I actually gifted the photo of the chimney top to a friend. My first gift of art...It was nice to give something so personal.

Great start. I hope you finish, but even if you don't, it would be cool to see a series of gate paintings. I love series art. Thinking of Monet...

Ohh yes when (and if) you finish it would be great to see the progression as it goes. I find that fascinating!

Since I'm going to China this summer, I'll end up with more than enough frequent flier miles for a trip to Bermuda, assuming the invitation still stands. It looks so gorgeous!

Oof. I've worked on it. It's just getting worse. I may still persevere...

Then start all over again, having learned something from it.
