Here's something cute!

When I saw this Whimsical Landscapes class by Mechelle Harrison  over at Creative Workshops I knew that this would be fun. I love this impressionistic style of painting and she goes through the steps very clearly so anyone could do it. I am taking a palette knife oil painting class on Saturday so I thought this would be a great thing to warm me up for this class. I decided for my first try I would just use her layout just so I could concentrate on the painting and not stress out about a drawing from scratch. This style could be used for just about anything. I think I will try some flowers. Wonder how Poppies will look in this style! Actually everything is cute with this style. Thanks, Mechelle!
This is on a 5x5 canvas with some knobby feet.
