OSWOA - Over the Hill 1

This was an exercise in a colour and composition class I took with Neil Broadfoot earlier this year.

For this exercise we created seven pieces with the same beginning and then had to create a painting whether abstract, impressionism or realism.

I turned my first attempt into a landscape of hills going off in the distance from the top of a rock ledge.

After leaving the painting alone for a while, when I came back and looked at it I decided that it was missing something.

I added the two sight seers onto the top of the rock cliff.

If you would like more information about OSWOA please go to my post on 12 March 2010.

The OSWOA shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Windsor & Newton paint on 300lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $30.00 and sold unframed.
