A backyard view of the house today. This was actually the dusk painted that I had started, but it got too dark too quickly. All I had done on it so far was roughed in the house and clouds. I was looking at it this afternoon and the clouds were exactly the same today, so I decided to make it into a daytime painting.
I feel like I need a lot more practice painting this view of the house because I am not totally satisfied with this one. Right now all I see are the mistakes on the house. But that’s the interesting thing about these daily paintings–it’s just paint and move on, imperfect as they are. I don’t get hung up on a painting or on trying to fix it–it’s just oh well, maybe tomorrow. I suspect I will be painting this view again because I love this view of the house, especially at dusk.
