Landscape - valleys

I've just done the underpainting on a new piece.  It's acrylics which I'm not very comfortable with, so we'll see how this goes...


  1. I'd be hapy with that just as it is - looks like a sea dance.

  2. A lovely foretaste of what's to come. I'll be back to see the finished painting.

  3. That alone looks pretty good from what I can see. It looks like a snowy valley in the mountains. Whay are you not feeling very comfortable with it?

  4. Thanks for your comments Jinksy and Bonnie (welcome to TLVD, Bonnie - will pop over when I have time)
    Sis - Thank you for the stroke... I usually work in oils, I'm feeling my way with an unfamiliar medium.

  5. Reminds me of Alaska.....

  6. Very nice Katherine, we will all look forward to seeing the completed painting. I always thought that acrylics were the painters friend, they dry so quickly (relative to oils) and you can wash your brushes easily in water!
