 :smitten: love this Danielle. You inspired me to have a look at this lesson and I found out that it is the video I watched first on YouTube which is how I ended up finding Paint Basket.  :)

I am going to try and be brave and change it up a bit like you did.   :sweat: hopefully it turns out half as good as yours  :clap: :clap: O0
Aroha! Lisa :-)

Tried to do my own thing a bit with this. I did it in oils. I let the sand and sea dry before adding the couple and the edge of the water. I also decided the edge of the sand near the bottom of the painting wasn’t dark enough so added some darker colour and now it looks smudgy and I am not sure about the shadows, I can’t blend them due to the sand being dry so in hindsight…   :confused:

Not quite sure what to do now. I did really enjoy painting this one and loved it until the very end. Any help or suggestions gladly received  :flowers: :pray:

Aroha! Lisa :-)

Thank you Lisa, your posting reminded me that I had forgot to do this important lesson.

I learned to appreciate the value of acrylic background, but I still find it much easier to blend oil paint than acrylic paint.

The lady had a bad hairday, she did not expect a proposal!  But what is it with me and drawing hair?  First my poor horse looked like he went through the electric fence, now this.  The more I tried to fix it the worst it got.

This is the oil side:

And this is the acrylic, with lantern, couple, and shadows in oil:

Thanks Nolan,  :flowers: I have actually adjusted the shadows but as it was veering away more and more from the lesson so I put it in a new discussion for my own oil paintings under encourages. The light was a little bright on it which makes the hills look too highlighted which they aren't but I am really happy with it now  :) :smitten:
Aroha! Lisa :-)
