Pupoju Road


I haven’t gotten to paint much this week but I did do another 6×6 oil on panel for this month’s Virtual Paintout. I’m not crazy about it but I keep telling myself I need to practice landscapes so this was good practice. It’s not so bad, I guess, but I just couldn’t match the picture in my head with this one. I found this little spot on Pupoju Road in Vilnuis, Lithuania. Can’t wait to see where we go for April. Happy Paint Party Friday!

ETA: After some distance from working on this, I’ve decided I like it after all. It’s funny how they seem to change after you stop looking at them for a while! Now I can appreciate it for the painting it is, whether it matches that vision in my head or not.

    I love this painting. It has a mood that really draws me in and captures my interest. It’s so pretty, and yet very lonely at the same time, and I like that! 🙂

    I love this! You did a great job on it. I think as artists, we’re our own worst critics but I completely understand when you can’t get the image in your head down on canvas.

    It’s a lovely painting! Sometimes we need to get out of our head and enjoy the end result, even if it doesn’t look like we think it should. Beautiful, beautiful work! Happy Easter!

    It’s hard when you have a picture in your head. I try not to have that picture before I start. Then I’m never disappointed 🙂 I would love to walk down that path!!

    The colours in the shadows are so compelling, I really like the depth you’ve given to your work. It’s so hard when it’s not what we have in our own mind, but I hope you’ll see its beauty anyway.
