This is one of the projects that I have been working on. This piece is not very big sizing in at 5 1/2 x 7 3/4 in. but has been very challenging as well as taxing on my nerves. If you click on the image you will see that it’s about 70% complete and I have myself hemmed in a corner. In my ref picture there is a big evergreen covering most of my tin roof (coming from the right). I decided to leave that out. I really didn’t have problems with that, because I’ve seen enough tobacco barns in the span of my life to make an educated guess. On the lower bottom right, (the white area) is where a bush is supposed to go if I don’t change my mind. I’m still having problems with that tree. In the ref. picture it has leaves, and I didn’t block them out before I drew the tree, and now I don’t know what to do and I’ve been drawing around my problem. A commission came in that I need to get started on so thankfully, I don’t have to decide anything right now. I guess I could take the easy way out and make it a winter scene.
What do you do when you have a technical difficulty? Do you push it to the limit or do you play it safe?
Be Well and Happy!
