Here's a little change of pace in my painting extravaganza. LOL Using a photo that I had enlarged and textured and painted/tinted some time back as the inspiration - I turned my hand towards making a small landscape using the same colors and scene. But, you know in art, things often change midstream. Instead of a farm, it turned into a little community of buildings and outbuildings. Makes me think of a little mining town, high up in the hills.
I really liked the warm autumn colors at first. But ..... last night I didn't like them at all. So I smothered the background with gesso and found myself turning it into a snowy scene. It's not done yet, but I like this one better. This one speaks to me. I can almost see people inside and how isolated and mutually dependant they must be in a tiny community like this.
This is the farm scene I started with, sorry it's under glass so hard to get a good pic.
