DSFDF PA hillside




I decided to do the latest DSFDF challenge since I missed the last one. I had no plan, pulled out the paints and picked a warm red for the sky. The rest just happened, lots of changes, and I added some branches to break up the space. A little study for a larger painting someday. It is only about 5 by 8 inches, done in watercolor in about 20 minutes.

What a lovely interpretation of the desaturated image on the current DSFDF challenge! I've just returned from a painting trip and have too much catching up to do to enter this time -- but I would if I could produce such a good painting in 20 minutes. Incredible!

Argh! You've reminded me I have to work on this! This is gorgeous. I love the colors you chose and the fact you added that tree. I learn so much from you.

This is so pretty! (side note) I got a kick out of the fact that you live in Mars.... I live in Jupiter!

Your colors enliven the challenge and show what thinking outside the box can do for a vibrant painting. I really like your interpretation.

Nice take on this Maria. You are a wiz with the water...20 minutes?...I'm still setting up and squeezing paint in that time.
