Last week in Pat's class, she gave us a black & white photo of this river and trees. We not only had to edit and interpret it, but each of us made our own color decisions. Unfortunately, mine was very predictable. I really want to stretch out more and use more interesting color combinations. My goal is to paint more impressionistic, and less realistic. Sometimes it comes together in my head, but I have a hard time actually painting it! I'm contemplating taking some acrylic lessons from one of my first instructors, Carlynne Hershberger. She has a look that I'm so in love with. Check out her blog!
