I’m showing a lot of trust and blogging on my iPhone. Word Press has done major work on the iPhone app.
This is from a photo my husband took. It was taken at the end of our street.
I initially did this digital pastel about a year ago. I decided it needed work. The clouds were looking very odd and the mountains had no contrast.
I recently joined a group on Facebook. People there are actually willing to tell you what’s wrong with a piece. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the likes. But sometimes I just really need a helping hand.
I have never gone back to a piece and reworked it. I have learned so much so fast in painting. I try to do some kind of art every day. Going back to a piece feels uncomfortable. I have changed. My art skills have changed.
Going back and reworking this proved very difficult. My strokes were very small and tight.
This was done digitally. I had all kinds of layers and digitally, it was a mess.
I think I should have just done a new one. That’s what I’ll do next time.
The clouds in this piece had always bugged me. They were so stiff. I also wanted to honor my husband’s photo with a better pastel.
It took me three days of futzing around, but I finally got it.
Mary over at oilpastelsbymary.com is a fabulous pastel artist. She had been a huge inspiration to me
I hope you enjoy this.
