Today is the first time of killing two birds with one stone. Not only is this my fifth painting in Leslie Saeta’s 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge, it is my first painting of the month in the Virtual Paintout. This is a scene found on Google maps from the Isle of Man.
I actually did this one a couple days ago, but let it sit and marinate for a little while. As I looked at it I didn’t care for the sky and water. Not enough blue in either. Never mind that the actual scene has no blue in it whatsoever, I wanted blue! So I compromised and did some light blue. Now I like it a whole lot better.
