A couple of years ago I went to one of those painting classes where you get a group of people together for a painting party. I didn’t like it because I don’t like being told what to do (especially artistically) so I didn’t follow instructions, but I did end up with a pretty nice canvas that I’ve used as a backdrop for some of my photos with my Halloween houses.
I decided to do another one that might work a little better. I just painted some Payne’s grey (which always gets me because it’s not grey), titanium white and cobalt blue for the sky. I added some varieties of green, Payne’s grey and black to anchor the bottom of the painting and to function as the ground.
I like it very much as a background for the houses. I think it makes them more interesting. I may play around with it some more. I also will probably paint a piece for the houses to sit on so the backgrounds merge better. Let me know what you think.
