Summer Trees

What makes this painting special?

Hmmm... Well, it's not very good... The shadows aren't really right... The colors are a little garish... The shapes aren't realistic... The background is pretty contrived... Hmmm...

So... Have you guessed? This is the very first painting I ever did. It was on February 22, 2007. I spent three hours being nervous, frustrated, stressed, tense, worried... then proud! I had a finished painting! And... I thought it was lovely!

  1. H, Helen. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I love that you posted your first painting! I did the same thing so I can track my progress. I was very proud of my floating fruit.

    You've come a long way in three years.
