After I painted myself calm last week, today I worked on a few landscapes. I have pretty much avoided painting them as somewhere in my mind I thought they would be difficult to do. And the very weird thing is that I LOVE landscapes. I live by the sea and near the countryside. Something I wanted to do all my life and have been doing it for the last six years. I really should be painting it.
After I painted my exercises in yellow, I put them aside to dry and started by painting some trees on the horizon. I waited all week to finally finish them and here they are.

I think I like this one best. I worked on it last, so maybe I got better as I got going. My husband says it looks like a place we walked to on the Camino de Santiago.

These were fun to do as I didn’t know how they were going to turn out. I used cling film on the middle one to make the field more interesting, but you can do whatever you want. I kept the colors limited and used a fair amount of water. I’m not sure what I am going to do with them, but at least it has given me ideas to work with if anything.
