Oil on Stretched Canvas
I tried something new that more advanced painters do: I took my plein air painting of this scene, along with some photo references, and tried to paint a "studio painting". This took me two whole Saturdays. I got so frustrated with the trees on the left, that I sanded them down and started over. I think I really bit off more than I could chew, but I learn something from every painting. I think I will go back to smaller paintings, and try to do them "alla prima", which means all at once (one sitting).
