A little background: My mom suggested I paint a landscape for an art show on the back in April, and I wanted to dive back into oils, since I've been using acrylics on mostly everything (acrylics are ideal for my portrait business since I have to paint them so quickly and ship them out- oil paint just takes so long to dry that it's not practical or efficient for pumping out art quickly). So, Everything was free-handed on the canvas- no planning or sketching like I have to do with portraits. Of course I had an idea in my head, but no set arrangement of images. It was a lot of fun and actually quite a quick painting! I used another landscape painting I'd done for a commission as inspiration, but added brighter colors and a larger stream of water in this one. SO, enjoy watching the painting transform in the pictures below!
