Making a good impressionist

It’s not often I’m waiting around for feedback on all my projects at once but when it does happen, and I’ve got a day spare, I get straight in front of that easel!  Today’s challenge was to create a countryside landscape using NO green paint, but mixing up yellows and blues instead.

I love that feeling of being back in art class. Apart from creative writing, it was the only subject I really loved. When I was growing up, certain people told me I couldn’t make a living out of art. Well I did! So my advice is to ignore what others think (even if they have the best intentions), follow your instincts, focus on what makes you happy and everything else will fall into place.
