Re: January Landscape Challenge

Here's the correct link to the last image, though the size is the same:

All are great images, and I'm looking forward to seeing the many interpretations!

Re: January Landscape Challenge

Yup, gotta admit you done good, Pete. All three are good choices although that SNOWY one makes me squirm! I have to wait another day to show these to Judith and at that time we are pointing ourselves toward the Sunny Southwest. We'll have all our gear along to get some plein air time in but also hope we will find time to participate in your challenge. Thanks, Dan

Re: January Landscape Challenge

I have that snow scene in my favorites. I just don't know how to get that great tree looking so lacy when I'm working on tiny 5x7 boards. Great photos.

Use smaller brushes.

Re: January Landscape Challenge

I'm in. I need some practice with rusty brush skills. Rusty brushes leave nasty marks. LOL
