I've been in bed with a nasty cold, so to cheer myself up I thought I'd do a Hockney style drawing on my iPad and make it an entry for the Daily Paintworks Bliss Challenge while I was at it. I always enjoy painting mountains and clouds (and we rarely get clouds in CA).
This is also a painting form memory, which is not something I think I've ever done before. I didn't even look at my reference photos. Just pure memories from my trip to NM last week.
Not for sale, because there's nothing there but pixels, and Mr. Hockney has yet to establish the market rate for such prints. Ahem.
This is my entry for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge, the Mid-ism Challenge! We were to try and find the midpoint between impressionism and expressionism. I'm not sure I've ever been here before. Hmmm.
I took this original photograph ages ago and have wanted to paint it ever since, but never felt like I was up to it. This was the perfect opportunity and I couldn't be happier. Well....
