Stages of a landscape painting.
What with starting a new job (full time waitressing takes up a lot of time ok?) and planning a round the world trip, my painting is getting a little sidelined. But that’s all about to change! From tomorrow I’m going to try to post a drawing a day – I believe in aiming high, I usually draw once a fortnight. To celebrate this goal decision, here’s a post about the last painting I did which I gave to my sister for her 30th birthday last month.
It started the same way most of my paintings do – by tearing out an ad or picture from a magazine. This one is about Welsh lamb and it’s the Welsh hills streaming like rivers into the valley that I love so much. Plus I have a fixation with Wales having visited it nearly every year of my life. The countryside is absolutely magical.
Here’s the ad, ignore the white lightening bolts – they’re creases.
If you ever get anywhere near Wales, visit it. The mountains speak to the soul the same way the coastline does in Cornwall. Click here for their tourist website.
