The Wanderlust project last week was to paint an abstract landscape using a textured background. This is the photo I started with; a picture of Corfe Castle.

First I added some collage to my canvas and, having sketched on my picture, then added modelling paste to give texture. Then came layers of inks, paints and water-soluble oil pastels. 

The idea was not to end up with an exact copy, but rather a representation of the picture. Here is my finished picture.

you leave me speechless here... how wonderfully done in texture and the Colors - the Browns and Greens blend so beautifully!
happy Weekend!

This looks great! The texture and the different layers give a perfect look - better than the photo can do!
