So I did this this morning. First go and will definitely practice some more. I'm working with 1/2 pans. It is really much easier to work from the tube or from freshly squeezed paint on the palette. Personally, I think the intensity of the paint is too high, but like the ground very much.
I will try and do another version this afternoon. I wasn't working on the best paper - but will get out my good paper on the next attempt. I'm really looking forward to the next 2 classes.
My 2nd go at this project. Still need to practice some more. But these are fun.
