This is me tearing my hair out. The challenge from the Daily Paintworks this week was to paint a forest scene and they provided a photograph to download and work from.
I decided to get right on it. That was Sunday.
Now it is Tuesday and these are the three that survived the cut. I had a very hard time finding value shapes and was tossing and turning during the night trying to figure out how to handle this subject and achieve success.
What I have learned so far:
Photographs are always darker than real life
Trying and learning are always of value
Tearing your hair out is OK . It shows how much you want to succeed.
Using photographs you would not chose on your own always creates a challenge.
