Riverside Escape Oval

JustStarting 09 May 2021

Haven’t painted in a while. Felt good. This is my first attempt at an oval. The contact paper was tricky, but it turned out well I think???

Yeh I especially like the foreground birches

This is really good. I have contact paper but I can never seem to cut it nice enough. Do you have any tips?

I had to cut it a second time. But I found it helpful to fold it in fourths AND I used a plate to trace the shape. Sharp scissors helps too.

Real nice painting Andrea! Those many coloured bushes and trees really caught my eye!!

There are two articles about ovals and contact paper that might interest you and Happyisland. Although I admit your technique is useful as well!

Thank you Voy Kay. Spring trees and flowers were on my mind! 😀
