I just completed (or not) this 18x24 in acrylic.  The more I look at, the more I realize that I missed the mark.  Part of the problem is not achieving the depth I wanted....the road should appear to…Continue

"Nancy - I really think this is coming together and I like the changes you have made so far. What you have done seems to increase the focus on the hourse and given more distance to the painting.  I like what Mary has suggested about the road.…"

"Hi Nancy!  Did the concept for this come from a photo?  I think Mary is on the right track, but wondered about the original before jumping in with comments."

Mary replied to Nancy Simpson's discussion Bluebonnet Landscape
"Nancy:  just for fun - maybe take some chalk or similar method (so you don't have to repaint any changes until you want to commit to them) and at your hillside point (where the larger rock is on your right) - pull it out even wider towards…"

"Mary:  Thank you for your keen eye!  It did need to be wider and the rework of parts of the painting show the changes.  I will upload the new version.  I likely still didn't make it wide enough, for some reason, even when I…"

"Hi Nancy:  You done a lot of work on this and it is lovely.  I'm new to painting so take anything I say with a grain of salt, but I think the main thing I sees that feels not quite right is the size of the drive leading up to the…"

Bluebonnet Landscape

I just completed (or not) this 18x24 in acrylic.  The more I look at, the more I realize that I missed the mark.  Part of the problem is not achieving the depth I wanted....the road should appear to start on the top of a rise in the land, then go down to the house.  The house is larger than it probably should be (although the first house was demolished to being oversized).  I also think I need more color variation in the foreground.  I though I was achieving that when I was painting, but when I…See More

"I basically repainted :) left some of the original elements...distant mountains and tree, but took out the large rock.  Long way to go, but added the stone-look border so that I could get a better perspective.  Not sure what to do for a…"
