Conch Cottage #1

Seascape? Landscape? not sure, but it has land, water, and a building.
I've always backed away from landscapes. Maybe that's because I was trying subjects that I'm unfamiliar with such as hills, barns, mountains, you know.... rows of corn.   LOL ! 
I was encouraged by a fellow blogger to try more landscapes and I thought of what I'm most familiar with and that would be tropical scenes.  Palms trees instead of Pine trees, and sea and sky instead of hills and mountains.. If you've ever been to the Keys in Florida you'll see lots of little cottages like this.. they are hardly more than shacks but the sky is so blue and the water so green that even a tent looks good there. !
 Anyway this is my attempt that I finished this morning.. I'm sure there are lots of things a good landscape painter would change.  Yes, I'll try it again.. Barbra Joan

  2. I like the palm trees, with the soft and hard edges in the foliage, and the texture on the trunks.
