Re: July Landscape Challenge

I finally got a chance to paint again today! So I started putting some color in my grisaille. I shoulda waited until the sky was entirely dry before I started the trees; they look too darned regular. That will be my last task on this painting, because white titanium oil takes sooooooooo long to dry!

Smile Re: July Landscape Challenge

So many to comment on , all of them gorgeous interpretations!!!!

I managed to get a couple done... both small ones the lighthouse done on uart-600 paper 9"x 6" with various soft and semi-hard pastels, I've never done rocks quite like these so it was a learning process, as well as a challenge; Great ref, Thank you!
The second one is of the "hometown" gorgeous ref photo! Done on 8" x 10" canvas board with acrylics and last layer acrylic with acrylic glaze.

Re: July Landscape Challenge

Thank you, Wendy! Tammy, I love looking at what others are doing with the same scene, but I'm going to do the Skye ones as well. These are really fantastically beautiful references we have!

Re: July Landscape Challenge

It really shows that you enjoyed doing this - you have injected a great feeling of life to it - I love the sky (in Skye, lol), especially!

Thanks Rolina for hosting this and the great photos. Might try another if I get a chance before month's end!

Re: July Landscape Challenge

Oh wow - I really like how you have made it your own - that is wonderful. It works well and looks just like how it would look on a dull day - how clever!

I apologize if it's a bit different than the bright colors in the original.

Re: July Landscape Challenge

I am very impressed that you have tackled not one, but two - and the two hardest ones in my opinion. It is great that you have tried two different mediums, I can't pick a favourite! Hmmm, I think you have got the structure done very well in the lighthouse one which nearly makes it my favourite, but then, I like how well you have used your colours in the acrylic one, especially those difficult greens. Fabulous work and thanks for taking part!

Re: July Landscape Challenge

Ooh, Sandra, I think you are going for the complete set! Actually, they would look good framed and hung together I think. I absolutely love how you have done the sky in this, it really describes it well!

Re: July Landscape Challenge

Heh, I wish it were my WIP, Diane, I think you must mean Nancy's. It really is a great way to watch a master at work, isn't it?

Re: July Landscape Challenge

Here's what I did with the Fife sunset this afternoon:



If it looks complete to you, I'll move on to one of the others!

Re: July Landscape Challenge

Having looked at the reference photo again, I think I would pull some of the sky colors on to the roof behind the trellis, but really it looks great! I added a few more observations on the oily, but if you feel it is finished, move on indeed!
