Nice 'abstraction' of the ref photo!

Hey, how about a nice green tree in the distance to reward our eyes for following that road all the way back? :evil:

nice - gives me the feeling of travelling at speed down that lonely road :) :clap: :clap:

It's a simple photo but it makes wonderful paintings! Love it. :)

oooh, I like this...I look at it and think, whoosh, whoosh, whoosh...all those neat strokes! Who can see the end of the road with that sky to distract? :D

Love, love, love your active sky and the lonely road juxtaposes beautifully.
(hope Ginger continues to improve!)

Love it Celestia. Your sky is marvelous. The brush strokes really bring out the clouds and the movement in the sky. Boy you sure captured the loneliness of the countryside. Great [email protected]!

Like the look of this one - colors are great.

Love dem dere clouds, fields, and road. I don't need a green tree at the end. Just traveling down that road is all the reward that I need. Glad to hear that Ginger is holding his own. Hoping for a full and complete recovery. :clap: :clap: :clap:

I love looking at people's WDE's that are the same reference photo as mine! We all end up with such different things! I love the loneliness (sp?) of this for the viewer - wide open, quiet - you can hear the wind rustling the corn stalks....just wonderful!

Good job! :clap: :clap:

Boy I hope I can do justice to oils (when I have a chance) like you and Deano....this is spectacular in it's simplicity! LOVE the sky, in fact I love the whole thing!

Another simple scene with great emotional impact. Love the colors and movement in the clouds.

I love paintings like this and your sky is GREAT!

I love the blustery clouds and the indistict edges of the road- makes me wanna be in a big Dodge truck, both tanks full, with pounding classic country tunes on the stereo ! I can feel the 'need for speed' just lookin' down that road ! Lovely work ! :clap:

Really Nice one, Celestia. I love your bold strokes, and basic shapes. :clap:
Am also hoping Ginger pulls through completely.

Gosh! What gorgeous, blustery clouds - such vigour... and contrasted with the complementary ground - super!
Don't know how I missed this earlier - sorry! - probably because so many are now joining us! :)
