New Landscape Paintings

Hi friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far. I had a tough time but I am hanging in there. Something that helps is being creative. A few weeks ago I was watching Donna Dewberry, the one stroke artist, on t.v.  She was doing landscape paintings. I have never done landscapes and couldn't wait to try.

She used acrylic paints but I used watercolor and oil pastels.  I do want to try acrylic paints next. So here are my first attempts. I am proud of them. If you want to learn more about Donna Dewberry go here: DONNA DEWBERRY BLOG

My very first one!

I really like the sky on this one. But the tree out of the water makes me laugh!

Love this one overall. I used white oil pastel to make the moon and stars.

This is my best effort. Love the overall look and the moon is oil pastel.

Tried something new on this. Not bad. I added land and whole trees.
