|San Dieguito Park|
This was my first assignment from my first oil painting class. Other firsts: painting trees without compulsively painting each and every leaf and first try at water reflections. I added my signature hoping that would be a definite finishing point, then proceeded to tweek something else. I need instruction on how to sign a painting with a paintbrush. Whew. Oh, and I clearly wasn't thinking when I chose a 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas. I am more familiar with acrylic paints which dry so quickly. I kept forgetting the four sides and had to go back to fill in which stayed wet for days. Every time I moved, set down or touched the artwork it caused issues. Let's just say, there is evidence around the house. Oh well, it's been a huge learning curve, but a huge accomplishment, as well.
