Interpretation of Montana
I've been painting whenever I get a free moment. That isn't often. Usually, its while Megan and I are watching American Idol-it is pretty much the only TV show that we watch regularly, with the exception of reruns of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe, which has to be THE funniest show on T.V.
I've put a time limit on these little studies that I've been working on. At the end of the T.V. show, I'm done. That's it...put the brush down, clean up and go to bed.
The inspiration for this piece was a photograph sent to me by my friend Bryan from Montana.
How'd I do? I've been reading "A Painter's Guide to Color" by Steven Quiller and that has been very helpful- especially where it comes to mixing colors and how to create paintings where everything isn't just all bright colors. So far, it has been rewarding to read his book.
Any comments or suggestions about books techniques, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
