Here is my painting for the Day 21 of the 30 in 30 challenge.

Another one that I actually painted over an old painting. I feels like I am just starting to understand the power of oil paints. I come from a  watercolor background so I am always concerned about planning ahead. But this is quite interesting, in a good way or bad, you tell me…

Here are some step by step pictures.

Oh and here is my old painting that I am going to paint on top of. At first I thought that this would be distracting because of the things underneath. But once I start painting… it’s funny, I don’t see anything else but what I need to see.

Now the magic begins as the blue mountain begins to emerge… I love this stage!
