My challenge in the following 28 days will focus around Landscape or Cityscape. This is an area where I haven't spent much time. This is a tiny little thing....only 5"x7" on a canvas panel. My husband and I spent many hours walking the streets of downtown Savannah last Spring and Summer photographing interesting buildings and townhouses. I tried to keep this painting from becoming too ticky tacky and it was hard. I think that I will become better acquainted with what to include and what to leave out in the future. Tomorrow is another day and I am up for the challenge!
I recently bought several new books for Christmas and was given a beautiful book on Thomas Hart Benton. I saw a documentary on his life and work and have so much respect for him. I will tell you a little bit about him and include photographs of some of my favorite paintings.
