Thank you all again!!
Well, I kind of had a set back with the sky that I painted. When I chose this particular canvas I didn't notice that it had a few flaws in it. The scarring wasn't apparent when the canvas was white but as soon as I painted that nice blue sky over it, the blue pigment gathered naturally around the scarred areas.
This photo is just of one corner of the painting that had the worst of it. There were a few other smaller ones throughout the entire sky. And this photo doesn't even show just how much it stood out or show the yucky texture they had. They were totally visible from several feet away even! Let me tell you, it just plain looked sloppy 1.4.jpg
Needless to say, I was SO disappointed. I loved my beautiful, smooth, cloudless sky! I definitely didn't want to start all over on a fresh canvas...and if I couldn't come up with something, then I sure would have because the way it was now wasn't acceptable.
I added clouds.
And this did the trick!! I was sure to hide each little scar under it's very own cloud and you would never know that they were even there. Ugh, what a relief! And to tell you the truth, I think I like it even better this way ;)
