Painting for day 2. This is a scene from the area around Somerset Dam which I took coming home from Toowoomba some years ago. I have tried to address line, colour relationships and temperature when painting this. Below is my set up for this painting. If you are struggling with motivation this is a great way to get started. Prepare some boards, I have used foam core boards from Officeworks. A2 size are $6.00 and are reusable. Don't over tax yourself, start out with a goal of say 3 x 30minute studies per week. You will be surprised at how quickly your skills progress. DO IT NOW!
I prepare my boards a week in advance so I do not spend / waste time fluffing around looking for something to paint. The idea is my boards are ready to go so I can jump in and paint a 30min study quickly so I have no excuses not to do. I am just a little slack in posting my pieces...sorry about that.
