So...finally getting started on some landscape work. I'm a bit nervous. The last landscape I did was on the Big Painting Challenge. It's taking me what feels like an age to get started and decide what to do...how to approach it. I don't normally work from photo's but my holiday in the Lakes was a holiday holiday, not a painting holiday, so the camera became the tool to use, rather than paintbrushes.
I'm findng the photo a bit restrictive - it was taken through the windscreen of the car as we were zooming down country lanes, but I do remember the amazing colours and have decided that that's what I want to bring to the fore - colour and shapes. This is sort of a tester landscape, a warm-up if you like......there are a lot of ideas for me to play with yet.
