Phone, Canvas, and Paints

Photos on my phone serving
as reference for the new canvas painting.

Last time I went landscape painting I took a ton of shots of the views with my phone. I figured once things got colder out it would be fairly difficult to get out in the field. Also when the urge to paint a canvas strikes I'm always ready with reference.

Although I don't feel this piece is as successful as I was hoping (the barbed wire posed quite a challenge even though its just a line.) I'm fairly happy with the results. This one will most likely be turned into a Christmas ornament.
