Little Cottage



"Little Cottage" was a bear to paint because of all the lines that had to be straight in the door and all the details.  What I am mainly trying to do in my painting pursuit is to simplify the photograph and don't give too much detailed information. This one was just really complicated with a whole lot going on. I had such high hopes for this one but it's not a failure by any means because every painting I do gets me a little closer to being a confident oil painter.
I actually didn't mean to post this today---it was suppose to be for tomorrow but it's ok. Tomorrow I will show you the painting that I tried to fix with some success and another one of my grammar school art pieces.

Its fun to try new ways of painting, I'm going to go to my first oil painting class in years, I told her I wanted to learn to paint looser, cant wait to show you what I paint (I'm not sure what it will be, at this point)

I'm curious if your calligra-fun class ever goes on sale?

Thanks, Margaret
