Oh how I wish I'd done a better crocked old shack......but it is what it is! I do like the swirls of the rest of it PLUS the cold creek!
Anywho - 10 x 10 on canvas using too much acrylic paint. The SWIRLS created by an awesome little tool that clay people know all about! :smug:
About 15 minutes for that sketch and then another hour to play and paint. Not my best but OH MY it was FUN!!! :clap:

:wave: Holy swirly whorls, Valri - whichever tool you used creating these has produced a very strong warm texture and is balanced with the coolness of the dark water and what you termed "sad shack" looks happy in its environment. Love it!:clap: Happy Easter!

Those trees make me feel like I am watching them blow in a good wind ! What a wonderful effect, and I like your crop ! (Good thing it was built prior to Environmental setback regulations LOL)

I thought of Van Gough too. So expressive. Great work.

This took about a minute to load so I had your text but no picture and then the painting popped up. What a wonderful surprise. I love the swirly bits and want that potters tool. The painting is definitely a keeper.
