Oil Painting #11 - WetCanvas! January '09 Landscape Challenge, Second Choice


Several photos are usually offered in the WetCanvas! Landscape Challenges, and I decided to try another of the photos offered this month. If anyone is interested, the Landscape Challenges can be done in any medium.

I must be learning to chill out about painting with oils. If I'm not pleased with my color mixtures, the composition, or how I painted something, I look at it as practice and a learning experience and move on. I wish I could get the same attitude with drawing and watercolors with which I still freak out when the least little thing goes wrong.

5"x7", Artisan oils, canvas pad.

Nice blue shades! I think the key is to just enjoy the process and try to avoid thinking about having to produce a result...

I love the blues in this! I'm going to try to learn from your laid back attitude.

This is beautiful, Jenny. I love the color blue, and you manage to create the most beautiful shades of blue in this painting.
