I was tempted to avoid painting this, because I found the pegs hard to draw (and I thought I’d stuff them up painting them), but I’m glad I didn’t. The colour in the photo’s not quite accurate (what looks like a red peg is actually bright pink), but you get the idea.
This is my first attempt at a larger canvas (12×16″) and my own composition. It’s based on a photo I took.
Or rather, a tree and clouds. I didn’t really think about composition with this one. Too much to think about with colour mixing and just trying to get something that resembled a real scene onto the paper. Always learning!
