Christmas Landscape 5 Finished

Even though I was having a lot of trouble keeping on task today I still finished this painting and got 2 hours of art in today.

This painting has a lot of foliage and a ton of details that I had to leave out and try and simplify as best as I can. I’m happy with the end result as it is more bright than a lot of the previous works. I also enjoy the X like composition.

What went well?

A good amount of time spent on painting today even though I wasn’t as motivated as I would have liked.

What didn’t go so well?

Lots of the foliage details led me to use a very similar brush stroke patters all over the painting.

What did I learn?

I could learn a lot by studying textures and trying to reproduce all types of textures in a landscape.
