Often we encounter a scene when either en plein air painting, or from a photo that has potential to be a nice painting. But it needs to be cleaned up a bit, maybe a seasonal change, information deleted or added, cropping, etc.. This photo is just that kind of challenge. It has potential, but needs the imagination of the artist to make it an interesting painting.
It is of an old mill near where I live. The only time you can see it well enough to photograph is in the winter when trees are bare.
Because this photo has quite frankly, given me fits in several attempts in trying to paint it, I sent it to Carol for this challenge. I am interested to see what you all will do with it.
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
