My Original Artwork ~ A Medieval Fair

I’ve completed My Original Artwork ~ A Medieval Fair (18″ x 24″), and am pleased with how the result reflects the original idea I had when starting this painting.  I like how the jousting tournament and tents in the foreground stand out in a colorful array, while the castle and mountain landscape are softer and muted in contrast.  I also managed to paint in a cast of villagers and townspeople watching the tournament, which was a first for me.

Each new painting is a challenge and an adventure for me, as I attempt to discover and incorporate new techniques and push the limits of what I’ve been able to do previously. My next piece will be of a field of wildflowers, using some of the softer and more muted techniques I incorporated into ‘A Medieval Fair’ ~ enjoy! ☼ 🙂
