Inspiration, My Second Painting

Colorful Landscape Painting
18"x24"    Acrylic on canvas panel

                                      

I found my inspiration for my second painting on the cover of the "Acrylic Artist" magazine: a painting by Mark Gould, "My neighbor's house 832".  I loved the colors and the composition of Mark's piece, with the hilly path going to the horizon and the sharp homes that contrast the natural landscape. I tried to replicate the same feelings on my canvas. I really enjoyed experimenting with color. :)
I hope one day I'll be able to take a landscape scene and make as colorful and interesting as this one all on my own, without having to copy another artist.  - Hey, did I just referred to myself as an artist?

  5. Thanks Viviane, you are very kind. I fell in love with Mark Gould style. I wish I was able to create something like that on my own, but I think I will pick another of his paintings as inspiration. Merci encore.
