Finally finished my "sketch." I started this exactly a month ago and spent about 5 hours on it ironing out the composition and rendering. I believe it's the first painting where the colours online actually look better than the original. Anyway, I've learned a ton, main point being not to jump into colour right away. Even Cole didn't do that. And I probably should have used reference too...And the Hoe-Girth studies for today. Trying out different brushes. Soft/hard combination seems to work much better than just hard. I've learned so much from doing these digitally, it's not even funny.
