A friend of mine challenged me to paint a landscape from a painting. I am not a landscape artist and I rarely copy from photos. I still used it as more of a guide, rather than trying to depict the image directly. I found it very tedious, and boring. But I am pleased with the outcome. I am getting it framed tomorrow and it is being gifted to my grandmother (she has lots of empty wall space)
Water colour on 18″x14″ board. With a touch of gouache and Acrylic.
Photo it is based on is from here : http://josephrossbach.photoshelter.com/#!/index/G0000B7QfDGCnndk
