Something as simple as repetitious patterns can seem invisible until someone else points them out. Another advantage to attending classes is the opportunity to meet other student artists and feed off of each other's energy, everybody has something unique and valuable to contribute. This winter I started attending classes with Susan Jarvis. I've attended classes with Susan in the past but it's been over two years, I decided it would be worthwhile to go back. This painting is the result;
"Kings of Autumn"
Acrylic, 24" X 12" on 3/4" deep cradled panel
Original - $265
While the reference photo was mine, taken in the Uinta Mountain Wilderness near Mill Hollow and the composition was mine Susan helped me tweak the painting to help me make it the best I can make it. All those little things can add up to make a much stronger overall impact.
