Road To Eternity

Just finished my latest work; it was a tough one to do. There were too many colors and too many washes involved, and perhaps this wasn't the correct choice of picture for a raw beginner like me.

Anyway, I have come away from the experience with quite a few learnings. And most importantly, I have realized that I have to be a more patient artist. I just can't seem to wait for previous washes to dry before starting out with my loaded brush again!


Though when I look at this picture of the drawing, it does feel like the camera did not quite do justice to it. The interplay of light and shade in the finished painting does look much better upfront, believe me! For the record, this one is also inspired by the Cotswold countryside in the UK.


How I envy my friend for actually being able to travel down this road and watch these glorious Fall colours. And thank her for sharing this lovely photograph that inspired me to be creative with my colors and brushes. :)

Till the next paint outing....
