The Phone Challenge

The Phone Challenge
DPW $85

     Here is another Challenge I was glad to see. My landscapes are my nemesis and I need to practice them more.
     This is from a photo taken on the run with a cell phone and given to us to paint anyway we want. This week's Challenger reminds us that a good photo does not always mean a good painting and vice versa. A good reminder, but how well I know that to be true. So many photos of landscapes with so few paintings to show for it.
     This is the first landscape I have done this year that I like and that I did not have to wash down several times before I arrived at a finished product. Thank you, Elaine.

  1. Your simplification of the subject combined with super brush work makes this painting a winner IMHO! You should do more!!!!
