And now, for something completely different...
A landscape. With not a critter to be seen, anywhere. World is ending.
An explanation is probably in order: this was my christmas gift to my family, back home in Iowa.
This is their view from one side of their "hill." Maybe I'll do another scene from the other side of the house, on a bright sunny day... provided they use their new camera to take higher quality images. Let me just say it was a bit tricky to work from a rather blurry and low resolution 4 x 5.5" photo. NOPE NOPE NOPE.
I'm far from being a landscape artist. I obviously need practice, and this is far from praise worthy. I hope it's just good enough. Maybe if they don't stare too hard at it.
At any rate, I decided my gallery could use something a little different, so here it is. (For the record, you're not obligated to fave it just so I feel better.)
Watercolors on Arches 140 lb hot pressed watercolor paper. (I killed it.)
