Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I did not have a canvas or board to work with, so I used something I had available--a pizza cardboard round (I have used these before for different projects). I had a large variety of acrylic paints on hand (not the true acrylics, as Susan uses), but I plan to purchase those in the future. I referred to the lessons from her class on landscape painting in your neighborhood, and the methods taught were very helpful.

The rock formations are so well handled and the color relationship with the greens and pinks really vibrate. You show how much you can accomplish even without the ideal materials!! Wonderful :)

thank you...it was a fun project, and your instruction was great! Enjoyed the class (also the fact that I could repeat sessions when I needed to review "how to" concepts)! Next, I may try a place in the neighborhood! :) Then I can work a bit more on buildings.
