These are the photos that made me want to start the DPW challenge in the first place. I took them in Germany last year, and pulled them out months ago to paint. I tend to paint just what I see and have a hard time editing, which I hear is the thing to do with landscapes. I became curious to see what other artists would do with these photos – how others would interpret them. Thus was born the Challenge!
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is simple. Pick either (or both) of these images and paint them. Feel free to edit away to your heart’s content.
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.
