View Full Version : WDE Mar22. Lost in the wilderness - Woodshed
03-23-2013, 01:18 PM
This woodshed should, I think, have been an arbour:lol: Sorry Sue :)
We've been doing a couple of PaintAlong threads in Acrylics and the current one is to use a black b/g - so I painted a small piece of mountboard with indigo, red and viridian and got a nice greeny-black.
I did a very quick sketch in chalk, from the monitor, and then went away to paint it - no ref. So I lost the chair and all the greens have grown a wilderness. :lol:
Time - less than 40 mins. Medium - acrylics. Size 4.5"x6.5" (about 11x16cm)
Thanks for looking. :)

Like this very much, Maureen. Dark green makes a fine background here and the vines and flowers add the woodsy touch.

Maureen. This is a beautiful painting. Your greens are striking, the structure rustic. I wish this was my backyard!
