and now for something completely different...

I tried my hand at a slightly abstract landscape, painted quickly and with little detail(my view out the studio window, to be honest). I wanted it to feel like a snapshot, an image, just the sense of the landscape, like a photo taken out of a car window.

I like elements of it (not the dark blob in the sky, i have to remedy that somehow) and I like the colour. To be honest, it took me 20 minutes to paint, so there is not much to it  and the foreground mimics the sky too much, but I think I will persevere and paint some similar scenes...perhaps after each landscape I paint "properly" , I shall paint it like this and see which ones I prefer. I like that idea.

S.P. Goodman does this sort of thing very, very well.

Let me know what you think......unless you hate it, then please ignore this post!
