I've always shied from landscapes because I'm simply not interested in painting leaves/trees/water, etc. When something is difficult, it's a good challenge -- this is one of the reasons that I love painting the face. So the challenge of a lake scene was...challenging...but also really frustrating and time consuming. However, I'm very pleased with the outcome and how impressionistic it ended up being.
