EDM #100-Draw a Landscape (Canary Islands-VPO)



Well...missed the end of the month deadline for the VPO again. It isn't like I had started this and didn't finish, I just needed the weekend to work on it and the monthly cut-off fell on Friday. Anyway, since I spent a lot of time during the month wandering for a location, then thinking/planning about it, I wanted to 'do something' after all that; so I didn't let the momentum die but rather come to fruition irrespective of an arbitrary deadline...not to say I won't be trying to bring it in under the wire in the future!
Luckily, I can very easily catalog this piece as EDM Challenge #100: Draw a Landscape. (EDM is the first online challenge group that drew me out of a lifetime of not drawing/painting: thanks to everyone in EDM).

Congratulations! This is a wonderful painting. I haven't made the leap from sketching to painting. This scene is beautiful and it was worth your time picking it out carefully. Job well done!

Looks very vibrant and lively painting. I do the same with Virtual paintout - I keep wandering around a lot.
