Had a break from school work and decided to paint something off a photo I took in a local park last week
aprox 9x12" on Colorfix cool gray tone paper.

Enjoy and C&C always welcome!

VERY good work. You have real talent

I really love the splashes of light on the tree trunk. I also like the sense of light in the background but something about the yellow/green stopping on the left side of the tree trunk and the bright almost misty light colour on the right side of the trunk. Consider either extending the yellow/green to the right or the misty colour to the left or both. Bob

This is beautiful. I can almost sense a light breeze gently moving those branches.

Nicely done. Great textures!

Those branches are amazing; the variety of direction/perspective (coming forward, going back) you've captured so well!

jackiesimmonds: Thank you!

bobbymac: Thank you! I see what you are saying. I agree, it's dividing the painting. I'll think about it.

Ron: Thank you!

IMaybe: Thank you!

Nicole: thank you!

Lisa: Thank you, I am humbled by your comparison. Mr. Handell's work has always been my inspiration along with Richard McKinley and other great impressionists. I can only hope to be even fraction as good as they are.

Toniov: Thank you!

Karen: Thank you very much

Randy: Thank you very much. Speaking of textures, I saw some of your work on homemade surface. LOVe the texture it produced with the rocks. I am planning on making some of my own supports in the near future to try it out :)

Nell: Thank you very much!

Beautiful work! I love the sweeping motion of the branches, and they are placed so nicely. I agree about the background tones, having the yellow stop directly at the tree does divide the painting. I am interested in seeing how you handle this, it's a beautiful painting!

Thanks Chris,
Here is refinished version, extended the cooler blue to the left side and readded some branches :)

I like it! very well drawn and the tree trunk and branches are great!

Beautiful, subtle changes. You haven't compromised the painting one bit, but you have enhanced it to perfection! Love it!
