Wonderful, Sara...
You've really been producing and posting some amazing work... I'm so enjoying it!!

Even though it's from a reference picture I like the fact that there's still a looseness to the brush strokes. It reminds me of the impressionists of old.

Hi Sara-You sorted out the complicated shapes with ease. Great painting.

Regina Calton Burchett said...

I've recently discovered your blog - I love the way you paint. I'm trying to teach myself as well and get very inspired by people like you!

Beautiful reflections, well done!

Sara Winters said...

Thank you Marian, I've been working hard.

That means a lot to me, Greta. Sometimes I feel like I have to fight to keep it loose.

Perry- its funny, because every time I start another painting like this I throw myself into a panic over all the complicated shapes. Its like a therapy session, holding my own hand through another clump of color while telling myself to breath...

Regina and gianluco, thank you!

Annie, Kudos from another self-taught artist! I have learned sooooo much from all the wonderful artists out there who are blogging. I started painting in oils with Kevin Macpherson's Fill Your Oil Paintings with Light and Color.
