    Here is my effort. I took one of the photos I found for those graphite drawings, and used it as a reference for this one, too.

    Just a cell phone photo of me on my back deck - this is the open area off the screened in porch, which is behind me in the picture:

    So that's my ref photo for the painting. I changed quite a bit: from vertical to horizontal, from sitting outside to inside, from white wine to red, since that's my usual adult beverage. :lol: And I couldn't be bothered to mess with the railings.

    "Summer!"

    The best thing for me about this one is that it's given me other ideas. :biggrinangelA:

    Well, we missed most of August but let's go through September with 'scapes: landscapes, seascapes, or cityscapes.

    ooo! Okay, that gives a wide range. How about escape, too? :lol: From general madness.

    Here's my landscape effort for this theme. I haven't done one in months. My focus on this one was trying to get a long, deep distance. Not crazy about the foreground, but am satisfied with the distance effort. I feel a bit rusty with landscapes now, after all my recent focus on portraits. :lol:

    In my defense I’ve been painting bookshelves not landscapes!

    Thanks!

    I understand completely about running out of time. Is it just me, or has September flown by?

    When I was young, my mother tried to teach me how to paint and I failed miserably. She looked at me and said "why don't we get you a camera?" and the rest as they say, is history. :)
