Landscapes are VERY challenging for me and a little out of my comfort zone and even though i have made many paintings of landscapes I am going to add a select few to see what kind of feed back (if any) I receive, here goes (cringe)

I always see with a painters eye, when making ice tea i was inspired by the colors and shapes on my kitchen counter top before me. I grabbed my camera and took many shots of my ice tea preparations. I tweaked color, composition and perspective before i even picked up a paint brush. My goal was to have the painting look fresh, balanced and effortless as if it was just a  “Happy accident”making of iced tea

So… i drew some more and then i painted, will be posting my “Painting” results soon:)
