Still Life Painted

So, I didn't impress myself with this painting - I liked my sketch of it much better, but it gave me some more practice and it also helped me to know that I like painting landscapes better than still life.

Paint Exercises

I found another paint book that has exercises in it, and am trying out a few of them. They're just exercises, and not anything I would hang on my wall, but still I felt that I should post them here, as this is a place to note my progress and not just flaunt my art! I plan to complete a few more of these practice exercises before moving on to my next masterpiece (ha!) I still have my still life painting to do - I've prepared the canvas and traced the picture on to it, but am feeling a bit intimidated to paint it; maybe if I procrastinate and practice other things first, I might be more encouraged...

Eagle Mountain

Soar on wings outspread
Above horizons bathed in glory
Lifted by the currents
That bring us closer to home
