Winter Marsh

I've been trying to document how I paint. I'm actually kind of curious about it since in a very real sense, I'm not there. I've set up a webcam and an old laptop
running Linux Mint and the 'Cheese' application to do image captures at about five-second intervals, and assembled them into video using Blender. So, all free, open-source, etc. Here's my first attempt. I set it to shoot 600 frames, which unfortunately didn't go for as long as I painted. And, yes, everything is improved by the presence of "Yakety Sax".

And here's the painting. Several people whose opinions I respect have told me to leave it alone, even though it's not quite doing what I wanted it to do. Rather than mess with it further, I'm just going to paint the same subject again, and see if it's different and which I like better. Much more relaxing all 'round.
