November’s Photos to Paint Challenge

This one will be fun! This is a photo I took while visiting the beautiful Château d’Azay-le-Rideau in France. I am planning to enter a painting this month’s Photos to Paint challenge as well. My plan is to work on getting the draftsmanship right first. A bad drawing can ruin a perfectly good painting! Then it will just be a matter of filling the shapes with the correct amount of detail and values. Easier said than done. isn’t it? Keep in mind that, in the water, reflected darks get lighter, and reflected lights get darker. You can actually observe that in the photo if you look closely. You will have until December 15th to submit your pieces and I look forward to seeing your entries!

Please use the form below to submit your painting by December 15. Your picture should be a high-quality jpg image that is at least 480 pixels along its longest dimension at 72 pixels per inch.
