Peggy's Cove Boathouse

This is a more complex painting completed over two classes with my mentoring group. They did great with this complicated scene and we all learned a lot, including the mentor! Mass foliage, water, reflections, architectural elements, wood texturing....all in the same painting! If part of becoming a good artist is pushing oneself to learn how to do things beyond what you know and not to stick with the things you know, then this group will do well as they both want to be challenged.

There are parts of this one I would do differently, but for all of the challenges mentioned above, I think it turned out pretty well. I may darken underneath the boathouse here and there, but other than that I will consider this one done.
