So I’ve finally finished it and I’m so relieved. I lose interest in paintings and really struggle to finish them sometimes and this was one of those. I’d actually intended something more abstract, but I found it just went in a different direction and I went with it. The next one will be more abstract!
Anyhoo, I’m quite happy with the finished result. It’s quite dark, which is what I’d intended as I wanted the contrast with the Loch in the middle to be very strong.
You can read about my progress in the blogs here:
Here’s is a quick pictorial run through of how it developed.
Looking a the photos it’s really useful to see how it changed. Should I have stopped halfway through??? I definitely should have left the hills they way they were but the foreground has improved a lot. The trouble was as I painted one hill this changed the relative colours of the other hills and I felt that I had to change them again. Each time I made up a colour it was very slightly different which through all the other off.
Really good experiment to see how it’s progressed, I’ve never done this before. I’ll definitely do it again.
