Challenge - Terra Cotta Turtle



Daily Paint Works has a weekly challenge. It's fun, because most often it involves trying something new, then getting to share the results with others that accepted the challenge. This particular one, had to do with placing your canvas right next to (visually) your reference, then painting it the same size. I decided to see if it would work for plein air too.  As you can see, I didn't quite get it.  To my defense (haha), taking the picture of this in plein air is hard to get accurate because it really isn't sitting right next to the reference (it's pretty far in the background). Moving the camera (or your head) a little bit will change the whole thing.  Does that make sense? It was fun, never the less. Try this challenge sometime to see how it works! :)
