One View – Two mediums

This is the beautimous view from my backyard…. painted once in acrylic (top), and once in watercolor (bottom). The first was done en plein air, and the second was done from a photo taken from the same spot. I don’t normally paint outside, but we have had some amazing weather in the last couple of weeks of August. Highs in the 80s rather than the 90s and 100s! It was too perfect to pass up!

  5. How innovative and creative to offer your collectors a choice of medium in your unique style! They are both lovely with a slight difference. Both beautiful!
