House By the Woods

Having a background of trees and no sky was something I was hesitant to try.  I wasn’t sure if the green would look flat or come out blobbish.  Both circumstances would have been undesirable.  Midway through the painting, the trees looked flat and blobbish.  I was ready to give up, but I persevered and got a reasonably woodsy looking mess as a backdrop to this little white house.

I don’t know how many times I’ve felt like giving up on a drawing or painting only to have worked through the mess and come up with good results.  Always stick to your work!
