A painting completed in my FA 102 class... elementary, I know, but I loved how it turned out, especially for someone who has zero tallent in wet media. This assignment was a fun one, though: Take a photograph or other picture from a magazine, newspaper, internet, etc, and then 'complete' the picture outside the bounds of that taken picture. The taken picture couldn't be more than 1/8th of the finished peice. You can tell fairly easily in this scan where the bounds of my chosen picture are, but its almost impossible to find when you're looking at the peice itself.

I hope you won't be offended when I say this reminds me very much of Bob Ross. I love Bob and his TV show and watch it religiously, so from me it is a compliment :)

I especially like how you've hinted at the mist around the base of the mountain.

he he I won't be offended; I can't believe how he can whip out such a great painting in like 1/2 hour.
Thank you :D

I would be so interested in buying a print, if I had money :(

When I become a millionare, I'll be on a buying spree at dA :aww: Put this up as a print, so I can put it on my wishlist so I can remind myself to buy it :ninja:

zero talent to paint in wet media? :| i think this looks stunning, i love the just white and blues in it too, makes it look clean and fresh, and untouched by mankind in a way:)

lol Thank you very much, for the comment and the +fav.

Also, I actually didn't paint the horses-- they're a printout from a photograph. That's the whatever-% that I chose to build a painting around for the assignment. I'm not skilled enough with a paintbrush to pull the horses off :D
