Again, … back from a Tuesday evening class, where our teacher gave us a 45 minute introduction to how he paints a very specific landscape, which we could use as a reference, or just do what we liked.

So, of course, I went for the do-as-you-like option. And here we are.

(This is all on really flimsy, calligraphy paper, my wife is going to kill me if she reads this. Using up all her paper …)

1st pic [CLICK FOR LARGER IMAGES], got some input during the course and adapted it here and there (got some pretty good advice, it’s this stuff you really need to memorize, so you can be objective about your pics during the making):
