Click to buy! (6x6 inch)
I painted this for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge, The Bridge Challenge. Most of it went pretty smoothly until I got to the background. I didn't have a plan for it going into the painting, which was a big mistake. In the photo reference from pixabay, there was just a mass of green trees behind it. I tried it, but it didn't look right. I think I wiped the background 3 times before finally settling here. I like that it looks like it is in the distance and somewhat indistinct. Could be mountains or trees. I painted in the very lightest value first, then all the parts in shadow and then everything in the sun. I know I still have so much to learn!
