Great class. I learnt heaps on this 21 painting journey

 

Project 1 - Light & Glow: This is my second attempt. Totally stuffed the first one. Still not perfect, but I’m pretty happy with it.

Project 2 - Under Sea: Really struggling with my paper.  My artist grade paints looked chalky & weak and the background dried unevenly, so I ended up having to do wet on dry over the top. Turned out ok considering but doesn’t have the look that it’s supposed to.

Project 15 - The Mountains:  pretty happy with this one. I used tracing paper to get an exact mirror image and included the front mountains.

Project 17: Floral Window - need a bit more practice painting straight lines I think

Project 18 - Expressive Clouds: I didn’t feel confident painting the powerlines. I practiced on another piece of paper but they were all wonky donkey.  More practice needed with long straight lines, so I decided to go with a beautiful eagle silhouette instead. Super happy with the result.
