I’m in two minds with this one. From a distance I really like it, up close not so much. I keep trying to tell myself that I have only just started painting so i’m not going to be good at it for a long while yet. The painting I used as my guide was “Autumn Rain” by Graham Gercken which I found on Flicr follow the link to see the original. Autumn Rain (Seriously do it, it is amazing.

There are lots of things I need to work on obviously like technique and colour mixing. But, the main thing for me to learn is patience. I feel I need to finish the painting in one night. I did this in about three hours. I rushed at the end as it was gone midnight and I was shattered.

I tried painting the tree trunks with a brush. The paint was still wet underneath and I just couldn’t get it right. Any suggestions would be great

Anyway I am going to start another one tonight. We’ll see how that goes.

    Please ignore if the first one made it through!
    To apply paint on top of wet paint, make sure the brush is loaded with paint. A dry brush will lift and roll paint off.
