Peaceful Meadow Landscape # 14 after Kevin MacPherson
12 X 16 inch oil on stretched canvas.
This is the last painting in my series of painting from Kevin MacPherson's books. I like it the best of all that I have done. I really feel like I have learned a lot by this project. My paintings don't look like his, but using his paintings as a reference has helped me to paint in a much looser style than when I first started. I was attempting to paint too much detail. (Like every leaf!)
Below is a picture of his painting from his book. You can see that mine varies a lot from his. I actually chose this painting because of his lavender sky. It looks beautiful in his painting, but mine just looked muddy and made my painting too dark. So I changed the sky to a bright sunny day.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting!
