Art Night, June 18th Close-up by blondemaverick Art Night, June 18th Close-up by blondemaverick
Went to a Canvas and Cocktails shindig and we all put together a painting from a photograph of clouds/aurora(?). At any rate, we were allowed to make the shadows in the foreground whatever we wanted... Believe me when I say this painting was meant to be an exploration in color and landscaping--after all, when have I ever painted in hot pink? Someone painted the Eiffel Tower. Someone drew a couple having a picnic. But I... I messed up a tree, so I painted a hangman. I messed up another tree and I turned that into a Cuckoo taking over a nest. I messed up an asteroid and I turned that into a bird.

I think it turned out alright, to be perfectly honest.

Step 1: Mess up.
Step 2: Mess up some more.
Step 3: Profit?

I think it looks beautiful. That bird looks like it was eant to be there. lol 


Aside fro the obvious coloring of the sky, I really like how you can see hints of leaf details, rather than what i usually see when people drop a big blob on it.

Wowzah--thank you! :blush: :faint: The shadows of the plants were, by far, my favorite part to paint... Painting in general makes me really nervous. There's so much you can mess up and just have to deal with/paint over later. But I am relieved you like it! These art nights have really gotten me out of my comfort zone, but I'm glad it's paying off :)
