Milestone :: Étape importante

It is a mistake to think that the practice of my art has become easy to me. I assure you, dear friend, no one has given so much care to the study of composition as I. There is scarcely a famous master in music whose works I have not frequently and diligently studied. (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart–1787)

Even though this painting is quite ordinary, for me it is a milestone as I think that I have just changed the way that I paint… even in a very small way, to me I am moving in a new direction. Let me explain… first, it is a painting without any ink lines which I have been struggling with for the past two years, second I am quite proud of the way that I painted in the layers of colours for the trees. Third, as I have just been accepted as a new member in the Artistes Hudson Artists, I am planning on painting many more paintings of this quaint village. I was so busy painting the tree tops that I disregarded the road, and it takes up too much space. In my top painting, I cropped it the way that I should have painted it.

Même si cette peinture est tout à fait ordinaire, je pense que je viens de changer la façon dont je peins … dans une très petite mesure, je m’en vais dans une nouvelle direction. Laissez-moi vous expliquer … en premier lieu, c’est une peinture sans lignes d’encre et pour ceux qui connaissent mon blog savent très bien que ça fait deux ans que j’essaie, et deuxièmement je suis très fière de la façon dont j’ai peint les couches de couleurs dans les arbres. Troisièmement, comme je viens d’être acceptée en tant que nouvelle membre des  Artistes Hudson Artists, j’ai l’intention de peindre de nombreux tableaux dans ce village pittoresque qui est Hudson. J’étais tellement occupée à peindre la cime des arbres que je négligé de tenir compte de la route, et elle prend trop de place. Dans la première peinture, j’ai recadré la peinture pour éliminer une partie de la route.
