I am having the absolute worst time in the world with the pointillism picture, so I am working on it a little longer. In the meantime, here is my painting using Van Gogh markings. This one was difficult, too, and it took me a few false starts to get the hang of how to approach it. The picture is based off of a photo I took when I was hiking at Savage Creek in Denali. This is on one of the first summits, looking down to the road where it crosses the water and disappears further into the park. I’m particularly happy with how the grassy areas came out. I used the same method with the reds and purples on the hill but didn’t have the same results. The paint felt like it was thinner or just wouldn’t apply the same- it was kind of weird.
Pointillism will follow shortly!
