Stonehenge-Don’t Laugh

My friend thinks that this painting is laughable, but considering it was my first attempt at a building, well not a building, more of a stone circle, I think it’s not too bad. You know the saying – ‘There’s never been a statue erected in honour of a critic!’

    That’s really very cool! So did you draw from a picture or did you get to set up an easel and work at Stonehenge? That is definitely one of the places to visit on my bucket list! Mona

      Hi Mona. It was one of my first paintings at art class. A friend of mine laughed a great deal at this attempt, because the shadows are all wrong, but I was new to painting. I’ve always quite liked it. I used a photograph, but I did visit stonehenge when I was about 10. We passed it on the way to the south coast for a holiday. It’s quite strange to see it though, because there a roads around it which kind of detracts from the atmosphere. I think if you do come to England any time it’s worth taking a look, and because it’s such a small country there is so much to visit within short distance form each other. I recommend Stratford upon Avon x
