12" x 12" Acrylic on MDF board
I am happy with how things turned out for this piece. Lots of things went right including my interpretation of the back bushes and the pine trees. The forms that I ended up with are very exciting for me. And I really enjoyed working again with the acrylics.
I have an unexpected full studio day today. There is a drawing ready to go too. I will be doing a watercolor study today. I am learning about hard and soft edges, gauging the wetness of the paper and the loaded brush, and seeing the piece in terms of "layers." I purchased a book by Tom Hoffmann and have been carefully going through the chapters. It's a delightful read for me in that this artist speaks and describes things in a way that I can both understand and relate to. So many art books that offer instruction are incomplete, don't describe things in a way that is understandable, or are either above or below my skill level. I can picture this guy standing there, doing a demo, and saying, "Well, oops! I screwed that up. See, I should have taken my own advice." Very down-to-earth.
Hope everyone is having a good week. Thanks for reading and commenting.
