I picked one of the nicest holes to start with. This one has a little water hazard which gives me a chance to do some reflections.
I started slapping the foundation colors on a 16 x30" canvas today with a broad knife (Below) and once I got the basics in place, I attacked it with a brush. Looks to me like I have a chance at making something out of this if I don't overwork it. We'll see..
