Out back--Painting # 2

This is an 8x8 oil and I am actually ok with this one because I went outside and took some pictures and tried to figure out the best layout to crop the picture so I could paint it. This is with a palette knife and I am still very new to the palette knife so it's probably too schmooshie but I am working on not schmooshing so much. It's like icing a cake so I don't think we would want our cakes all schmooshie like this. With every painting I get a little better with handling the knife.  I won't always use a knife but I will sometimes use a brush. Anyway I am pretty happy with this one since it was from a photo I had taken and turned it into a painting! Ok 2 down, 198 to go. I won't post them all because you will surely get extremely bored---and remember, if you read the blog post from yesterdays blog it said 120 bad paintings.
I don't let bad paintings stick around so I will probably wipe them off but at least I will have clocked in my brush/knife time. And for this one, if you stand back from it, it looks a whole lot better.
