I am happy with this painting although really struggle with bushes. I find myself getting confused with 'whimsical' style of mark making versus more realistic rendering of my images. The image with the bench was really hard and I couldn't finish it...I chock it up to part of the learning process, and some just don't work out. I get lazy with brush types and think that would help my images be more interesting. I used the same palette for both paintings basically. I think I am better to steer away from landscapes and go back to birds and whimsy :). Love your class Kate...appreciate all the detail about your process and I will return to this class for future projects. Look forward to your next one!
