After an amazing workshop with Colley Whisson at the Landgrove Inn in Landgrove, VT, I have been anxious to paint landscapes. But here I am, painting dogs and more dogs. A lot of what I learned translates to the dog portraits but I do need to push myself outside my comfort zone.
Finding the focus and expression or atmosphere of a landscape is always challenge to me. Perhaps instead I will listen to Malcolm Gladwell whose theory suggests I need to paint 10,000 dogs first.
