I spent hours trying to paint today. I had a reference photo with a beautiful blue and orange sky and a lake and castle. I always paint from the farthest part of the scene to the closest, and I could not get past this sky. No matter what I did, the blue and orange mixed and turned into a weird ugly color. Finally I painted over it but I couldn’t get any of my ideas onto the canvas and decided to quit being an artist forever.
I realized that was a little dramatic, so I put down my brush, took my son out to dinner, went shopping at the paint store, and came back refreshed.
What do I do when I don’t know what to do? Let’s say it together: FAN ART!
There is this adorable little game that I’ve been obsessed with for a while now called Stardew Valley. In it you inherit a run down farm from your grandfather and basically just live your life as a farmer and putter around town being social. I probably know more about the villagers in this game than I do about anyone in real life, and I’m okay with that.
Anyway, here’s my first ever Stardew Valley painting!
Thanks for stopping by!
