Moving On...

Following the success of The Mining Ruin, I've decided to do something totally fun. My teacher was okay with that once he saw the canvas I brought in and realized that it probably couldn't be taken seriously. It's an old canvas, full of texture from someone else's painting, and painted lilac. I took a photo of Lake Austin and have been doing a landscape on top of the textured canvas. I think it rocks! As my teacher finally admitted, it creates a lot of tension for the viewer to see a calm landscape on top of so much texture which is full of motion. It's cool!
