August 24, 2009 - Day 14

Da Vinci watercolor and Prismacolor colored pencils on
140 lb Bockinford cold press watercolor paper

This painting is a compilation of 2 photographs taken by Twitter personality MiraclesGoddess (also known as JoAnn Skywatcher). I absolutely love her amazing nature shots so with her permission I attempted to paint the deer picture that she took and I combined it with her misty mountain picture

As usual, I am not satisfied with the results but attempting this painting (and failing) has really ticked me off. I love nature and I love beautiful landscapes. It really annoys me that I can't paint the subjects that I love to my satisfaction. I have 351 paintings to go and by the end of my art project I WILL be able to paint landscapes and animals that I can be proud of.

So be prepared for a LOT of ugly paintings :)
