Like many bloggers I follow, I got a bit behind these last few weeks,
not too busy to paint, but too busy to post. I apologize.
These two paintings are similar in that the water in the backgrounds have a lot of details, and details are never easy. Since I have an affinity for painting birds, I had to do this one, but the cattails were a little crazy making. Am I just complaining here?
I am still so satisfied that each time I tackle these images from Libby Ellis, I start feeling doubtful I can do her images justice, and I end up satisfied with the final result. I can paint water. Who knew?
