Mile 9: House on a Hill

I finished this painting really quickly (for me), and I love it! I expected to have to work on it over the course of a few days, but I ended up being happy with it in about an hour (progress, perhaps?!).

I love the obvious brush strokes and how the colors work together- this is definitely one I’d like to replicate in the future. Whitney suggested that we make the houses a little bit round, which created such a nice effect. The tree in the background is my favorite part, though! It pulls in the colors in the hills and the houses and seems like such a happy little tree (in the words of Bob Ross). I received the email with instructions for Mile 10 today, but I really don’t want to paint over this one!!

    This painting is so lovely! Mile 9 was a favorite of mine too. I actually saved this one and started Mile 10 on another canvas …. it’s okay to save something you really love! Keep up the good work! I love following you on your painting journey!

    BEcause everyone else has had an opinion, this is mine. I WANT this one. I, too, love your ‘happy little tree’. Maybe someday if you are not already into some other ‘medium’ I’ll get one.
