Mile 9: House on a HillPosted: February 15, 2010
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!!
