Daily Landscape Painting, "A Little Bit Country" 6x8 Oil SOLD

I have had this image in my files for several years.  Each time I tried to paint it, I failed.But, I kept the image on my memory stick, always nagging me, like waving a red flag at a bull.

This time I was happy with the results.  It's is not a particularly difficult scene.  I don't know what caused me so much trouble.  All I know is that every nine or 10 months or so, I would give it a try and then wipe it off.

The attraction was the strong light in the mid-ground and the back lighting on the fence.  I am happy to finally delete this from my "things to paint" list.

Have you ever had this experience with a specific scene?  If so, how did you overcome the challenge?

What a great accomplishment! That's how you can be sure you are growing! I have quite a few photos in my "to do one day" file. Some I've attempted previously and it did not turn out well, and some I recognize that it would require a level I'm not quite at just yet.

Keep painting! Your work is beautiful!!

I do what you do - I keep at it sometimes with a year in between. And then there are things that I find my interest has changed its focus so much that it is "toss out" time.
You did a really nice, painterly piece here so obviously you made the right decision to have another go.
I really like so many parts of it but the negative shapes you created with the fence are fabulous.

You should be very happy with this version. It turned out really well.
