Easel-less Paintings

It’s come to my attention recently that easel-less paintings make for difficult photos. I started painting this new piece the other night and it looks super cool in person, but I had the hardest time taking a picture of it. To begin with, I have to hold the camera over the painting…which is just bad in general. But, on top of that, the painting was SUPER wet and so I couldn’t pick it up and move it to get it in better light. Therefore, no matter if it was day or night, the painting had weird shadows and highlights coming from all directions. Soooo..please excuse the ugly photography. It was the best I could do.

Oh well. Not much you can do sometimes. For those of you who remember the Sunset Painting I did last fall, I am painting this piece to be very similar. Multiple canvas, bright colors, and eventually some tree silhouettes, of course.
