I had painted this last year about this time for my daughter. This is an oil painting on a 12" x 16" canvas. Sorry about the photo - I still had my crappy little camera then and since she has the painting, I couldn't take a better photo!
If I have time to actually paint I definitely will try to get one in for Lynne's contest Renato! I've been working everyday for the last 3 weeks - so I just don't have any spare time to do it! Hopefully I can get some time to do one next weekend...
I see that also you are in distress with time!Me at all not be succeeded to occur Lynne's competition!We have of lot part on company at the moment!Whole still two pictures must to complete to in April !I want these that be at least you taken part and they won!
Thank you! No I started with a white canvas and did the red/orange/yellow sunset background first. This was the first time I tried using one of those hard cardboard back canvases. I much perfer the stretched canvas - easier to work with and less course. But that's just me!
Thank you Jasmin! I know, when I took this photo of my painting I still had my crappy little camera. But I got a new one for Christmas this year! So at least my paintings from now on should be better! I painted this for my daughter last year in February for her 21st birthday. If I remember to take my new camera with me when I see her next, I'll try to get a better photo of it!
Thank you Lynne for adding this to your 's! I painted this for Jessie's 21st Birthday... I think my painting technique's have improved somewhat since then - it's been a year of added experience for me! But it is nice to see the improvements I've made at least!
