"Purple Mountain Majesties"



5x7 oil on panel
So I finally entered the Different Strokes From Different Folks blog.  I never would have guessed that I would have started with a landscape painting as they are not quite my thing, however, that is one of the things I love about this piece.  The challenge to do something I would not ordinarily do...  The painting is small (5x7) and on panel board.  I wish it were a little more painterly, but it was fun to get out of my comfort zone and give something totally new a try...  Karin Jurick, the hostess of the DSFDF blog, posted a picture in black and white of a Pennsylvania landscape and each artist was challenged to invent their own colors based on the different values.  Of course my rendering is infused with pink and purple because that just seems to be the way I am leaning at the moment.

It was also my first time participating. (My painting is right below yours on the DSDF blog.)

I absolutely love the colors you used in this piece.
