This one is so beautiful and gives me a very strange feeling. As if I was seeing not a crumbled barn but the remains of a living being. It's hard to express, it's like a house which is telling you "see, I was so exhausted, I tried and tried to go on existing, but I could not resist, and so I fell". I've already said it somewhere else, but your pictures have a soul.
And thanks for the well wishes. I'm really enjoying the course for the most part so perhaps uninteresting isn't really right. It's just that there is a lot of technical stuff to learn before I can actually go out into the field, which isn't exactly riveting. Still, it all serves a practical purpose so I'm not really bothered. It's just that the quicker I get into the more creative side of things, the happier I'll be, that's all.
well remember.... the technique is important for the creative stuff.... you have to learn how to hold the brush and make the stroke.... but don't let the technique control you... that is where thew creativity comes in. (Actually from what you have said, i doubt that this is likely... still learn the technique.... suck it dry and learn it well so you can apply is creatively as you want).
