Hi, I'm artist Jennifer Beaudet, from Southern California, USA. I started this blog in 2009 as a way to share my art journey and meet other creative souls. It became my therapy. I use oil mostly with a palette knife and bold brush marks. My work is both, passionate and sensitive; inspired by nature's beauty. My blog is BeaudetArt and I first called it My Life As a Starving Artist. J Beaudet Studios
Birch Trees Fall Foliage!
This was a painting I just completed for the weekly challenge on DPW. This is my first attempt at painting these trees and it was definitely a challenge with so many vertical lines!
I used both a brush and palette knife for added interest. The painting isn't quite as dark on the bottom right in person, I think the easel gave it a shadow. I'm going to fix the tree in the middle so that
the top isn't so pronounced. I just need to blur it a little
because right now it's almost smack in the middle, which divides the painting in half.
