This is my submission for the Daily Paintworks "Non-dominant Hand" challenge. I did, indeed paint this using my left hand, which I thought would be easy, but was harder than I thought. What I didn't expect is that mixing was even more difficult. Who knew.

The subject is actually another painting. It was a lakeside village my father painted ages ago, and which hangs in my apartment. I was sitting in the increasing gloom last night and let my eyes go out of focus and I could see the buildings as rocks, so I thought, I'll interpret it that way and see what I come up with. I didn't do a lot of color evaluation since I was relying on a painting as my source, so I tried to keep it as close to that as possible. Naturally I failed there, but I did keep the general tone.
