I find it quite difficult

I find it quite difficult - student project

For me, it is very difficult to try not to paint everything I see in the picture. I took some of my favourite photos - New Zealand (because its scenery is just out of this world) and Prague (my hometown). And maybe that is not a good way to start - I care too much for those photos.

Next time I will choose something less close to my heart. So I can paint more loosely.

This last was not actually painted from this picture - it was more from the experience. But I found this as a proxy reference photo. I will definitely try to make some more. 

 

Thanks! Your class is great as always, Sarah. I found this one even more inspiring. Also quite difficult for me.

I tried one more time the very next day. And found it better. I used only the thumbnail for the painting part. And as you can see I am far away from copying the picture. Made another three.

 I even incorporated some microns and masking fluid for the fence in the bottom part. I find it quite difficult - image 5 - student project
