Lake at night

More abstract landscape paintings...

Abstract landscape painting of a lake at night, with pinewood trees reflecting on the water.

Alcohol based markers on Moleskine watercolour paper.

I am finding great joy in painting abstract landscapes with markers: painting them is relaxing, almost therapeutic, easy, and the end result is very effective.

I am not entirely happy with this one, but I am applying the philosophy of “finish what you started”, and it leaves me with a feeling of accomplishment that I really like, though it is sometimes hard to push past the fact that I am not completely satisfied with a work.

This was really hard to photograph due to the black reflecting the light, so in the end I was forced to set up my scanner I had lying there since I moved. This means I actually accomplished two things today – and in my current situation is absolutely great.
