Majestic Mountains

Emchop 07 Jul 2021

This was my 4th ever painting and suffice to say I bit off more than I could chew! A total disaster but I promised myself Iโ€™d upload my paintings to here, warts and all.

Got so demoralised doing the mountains that I just slapped the rest on to get it over and done with. One to revisit some day as it is a lovely image - just not this version of it ๐Ÿ˜‚

A botched painting is a great opportunity to get better and try new stuff. Can't make it any worse, right? What did you learn from that one?

Thanks Felix. I learnt to walk away and come back to it if it isnโ€™t going well. I also learnt to maybe dry out the brown oils on paper/card so they will hopefully break easier on the mountains. Iโ€™ve since practised adding bumps and small ridges to mountains, rather than just pointy triangles. So yes, guess it was worthwhile after all ๐Ÿ˜€

What did Bob say, if you got practice and learned something then it wasn't a waste.
