Yikes! This is great, the purples next to the greens sing! Richard McKinley always says to do this, and I do, and this is why.... beautiful work!

I love how painterly your work is, Shireesh. This is a simple scene and yet you've given it so much interest with your lively strokes and the colors. Beautiful.

Thank you all very much for the encouragement - means a lot to me.
I have been painting now for about 20 years. Started with watercolor ; but later shifted to opaque media.

This scene, even in it's somewhat simplicity captures my attention and makes my eyes stay in it! It is also playing an optical illusion trick, almost, on my eye. In a very good way. Beautiful work. Your colors are awesome and your strokes are perfectly laid, it seems.

Seeing your latest painting thought I should check out some more this one is outstanding too love that style. I am thinking I put too much white in my paintings as you have such an eye grabber with just that small pop of light colour, just love it.

Ditto to everything everybody said.

Wow, wonderful bold piece. Love the broadness of the strokes, the suggestion of detail. And the color, cool with that touch of warmth were needed. Lovely.

So powerful! I love the light and the break in the forest canopy. Your strokes are interesting and the acrylic underpainting texture is gorgeous with the pastels. This is so striking and beautiful. I love the feel of that little patch of sun on the ground and the open bit of sky. It gives me this sense of freedom. I can almost hear the birds and crickets.
