Historical Garden at Stockwood


I can't believe its been a week since I last posted! This has been an incredibly difficult week but with a high as well.Charles Dickens said it so well...."It was the best of times it was the worst of times."
Todays painting I did with quite a few changes,I used a bigger brush,I stood up and painted ,held the brush at the tip instead of like a pen.I'm not sure if all these changes have had a positive effect just yet,with any thing its .....practice,practice,practice.Another thing i resolve to do is follow Charles Soveks lessons ,which Maria Baluis very kindly suggested.
I've posted both the photo I used and my painting so that you can decide whether I have actually succeeded in simplifying this scene.

  1. This is a very pleasing composition, with interesting shapes. I think you have done a great job. Standing up to paint makes a big difference, doesn't it?

  3. I think you are on the right track to keep your paintings loose and free, this is quite a complex composition, but your attempt is very successful Azra, keep going!

  4. Great job Azra. I love the way you handled the brick wall and there is a lot of life in this painting - standing up has made difference.
