My first painting ever! I used artists loft ultramarine, brilliant red, and medium yellow, and Windsor newton burnt umber for the brown. That first brush stroke was scary because I had no idea whether my red was a warm or a cool red! But I like it. I decided to try my grass look more like pampas grass, and decided there weren’t any birds. Putting in the sand was really satisfying. Used my 2.5 inch brush to add more grass too. Really surprising how much expression you can get with the bigger brush.
Fan brush and palette knife were tough to use, gotta practice.
