Lighthouse 1

Here is the next project! This is 18x24 which is quite large for me. I really like it so far. Started with an under-painting to become familiar with the values. Really felt comfortable starting out this way and could relax when the white canvas was gone..lol The building itself was left white because i didn't want to have to try and make it white again later on. Going to pencil in more details as the perspective is proving difficult. Wish me luck!

Finished for now

Here is the final effort! Turned out much better then anticipated for my first landscape. Learned lots as far as color is concerned. Water was a challenge but the reflection was more difficult. Onto the next project..lol

Part 3

This is the last session of my painting class where I worked mostly on the grasses. The greens are a challenge but coming along better then anticipated. Figured it is pretty good for my first Landscape painting. Need more practice remembering colors and how we achieved certain combinations. It is like learning a new language. Gina is a great teacher!
