So, Im new and having fun exploring all kinds of painting styles. This may be called 'primitive' ~ I've since learned this can be a 'eeeh' kind of thing (not good) but whatever. I had fun doing it, all from intuition... would love some feedback. Btw, the trees are actually a very soft hansa?yellow/titaniumwhite, not this white as in the pic. 24x36, acrylic. Thanks!

Too well thought out and executed to be 'primitive' IMHO. I imagine primitive work as being naive, having no art training or understanding of how the medium behaves.

This is a very pleasant piece to view, but not primitive, yet enjoyable in it's simplicity

One persons 'eeh' is another persons 'ahhh'. I find your painting to to be charming and engaging, with a good use of color and shapes. Thanks for posting this.

Nice composition and colors. I wouldn't call it primitive either. I especially like the little blue amoeba-looking things.

very good painting, at first I did not see the trees, I focused on the colored areas and those shapes advanced and the white areas were the negative spaces, then it all shifted and I saw the trees with the colors in the negative spaces, sort of an optical illusion going on.

I find it very modern and contemporary love the bright colors

well, all of this feedback is great. thanks for sharing your thoughts. Maybe its not primitive afterall, and I don't need to find a label for it anyway at this point.

Very beautiful! I can see soft yellow color on trees and branches.

I like this one. The branches on this one give it better movement than the other one I saw a few days ago. Maybe going "primitive" (your words NOT mine :) ) freed you to focus on the composition more? Nice.

A very good follow-up to your last one. I can sense the fun you are having!

I love the whitist trees and the sun peeking through :). I'm not sure how I feel about the different sections of color in the background... Maybe one or two different sections of color but I feel it has too much right now.
