A couple of years ago we vacationed in Maine. Wow...what a take-your-breath-away gorgeous place! (Would love to live there provided I had a reliable heating system, a snow blower and a home office/studio!). I took lots of photos to use as references for paintings.... but this is the first painting of Maine that I've done.
I used the Artisan oils again and imposed two conditions on myself for this mini painting (it's an ACEO):
1. Spend no more than 30 minutes on the painting from initial sketch to last stroke of paint
2. No re-doing.... for any reason whatsoever
I actually managed to abide by both conditions. I do see some things I'd like to change (no surprise there :-), but I left it alone and will try to keep those things in mind on the next painting.
