Here are the 1st and 2nd drafts of the piece I talked about in my last blog posting (remember – this is an Exercise I am doing to get back in ‘studio shape’ after Summer Vacation)
The first draft on the ‘Waterfall’ did not inspire me much. I did it quickly, and just as quickly got bored of trying to paint from a photo reference.
And here is the 2nd draft…..I enjoyed this quite a bit, and although I don’t think I will switch to painting on paper anytime soon, it was a good exercise. I also forced myself to work out of my comfort zone when it came to my colour palette. That was an exercise I also enjoyed and highly recommend!
