Actually I missed a step I painted the sky last night, and started the house this morning. I think this is going to be a lot of fun.

This looks like it is going to be a really good composition. Are you using a reference or is this just something you thought up?

I have reference for this. There was a wonderful glow over this house after a recent snow storm. I hope I can capture it.

I may not be done yet but it looks pretty good to me as is.

This is nicely done Dick! Seems it needs a little more depth maybe? not even sure exactly how??? The trees strike me as a little flat. The house is great!

I think I can do something with the depth. Thanks Susan.

I love this painting, though Susan is right with the tree's, a nice orange/red glowing fire against the white snow and autumn leaves would look amazing in the foreground =)

I should go work on this. There are no autumn leaves in this image but that doesn't mean I can't add some red and orange. I should show my reference photo.

Dick you are unbelievable. How long have you been painting now? Just a few weeks right? This is amazing for how short of time you have been doing it. I know I didn't do that good so early in the process. In fact I'm not sure if I can do that good yet and it will be 2 years in May that I've been at it.

Your reference photo is wonderful. The sunlight warming the snow is really good composition. :wink:

I watch a lot of videos:biggrin:

I wish it still looked like that and I had moved on to another painting but no, I had to try and make it better.:crying: Oh well one step forward two steps backs seems to be my MO. Hopefully it will turn out a little better when the smoke clears.

Thanks Liz. Yay for the sidebar! I'm feeling good about starting something new but I haven't figured it out yet.

I know that feeling dickhutchings

If it wasn't for a dry erase board at work 5 years ago, I probably wouldn't be drawing today. :wink:
