Here is the progress from this week. I had a lot of problems with the small boat in the background, so I had to re position it and change the shape of it. Now I think it looks better. I have mainly worked on the lower left corner and somewhat on the big boat. The big boat supposed to show reflection of the clouds since it has some leftover rain inside… I plan to work on the big boat and hopefully finish it next week… Stay tuned my friends.
I am so happy to be done with my pastel landscape. I love how it turned out. It will remind me every day of my hometown and the beautiful Una river. In Latin Una means “In one” or “Together”. I decided to call the painting “Together”. Even though I now live far away from Una, still in my heart we are together.
I am almost done with my river landscape. A few finishing touches on the trees, sky and boats and that’s it, I think. I am excited to be done and I am happy how it turned out. This scene is of river Una from my hometown in Bosnia. Many beautiful memories connect me to this place. I have to think of a good title for the painting…..
Here is the week 1: start. I really enjoy my pastel class! People are welcoming and kind and I always accomplish a lot. I can never make that kind of progress when I paint at home. This is how far I got the 2nd week:
