My Fav Palette And A New Class!

I am taking yet another new online workshop! lol  This time it is with Juliette Crane.  I just started her "How To Paint A Girl" course.  I have been an admirer of her artwork for sometime now and thought it would be fun to get back to some whimsical girls.  

This piece is on an 8x8 canvas panel.  I went back to my very first favorite palette . . . payne's gray and burnt sienna.  Oh how I missed seeing them together.  I was going for a landscape type scene.  As you can see I tried to incorporate my recent love of scribbles with the scratches I made using my palette knife. So fun to scribble.  I tried some drips as well.  And then I splattered some white paint thinking how much it looked like snow.  I couldn't help add some of the abstract techniques I am learning into the landscape.  I wondered how it would look and I like the results.  

I originally made this as a background for a girl but I think I like it as an abstract landscape.  

What do you guys think?

  4. I like it as it is... it doesn't need anything added and i think then it would distract from a lovely vibrant piece of work...xx
