You made this one sparkle! I think you mentioned the WC image gallery in reference to this painting; what's the location? (color of soil is interesting)..and the sky in enviable! Its all rolling and the barn holds it down nicely. :)

Nicely done, Bertoni. I agree with damar - the color of soil is really interesting.

Hi Bertoni,
I very much like this one, it is so fresh and crisp, wonderful combinations of white and green.
Really good composition with the fence making a path to the interesting building. Nice depth, colours, I think this is up there as one of your best pieces! :clap:

Thanks much for your view of the painting! Whoever posted the image in the image gallery didn't give a location and posted anonomysly. Wish I knew the location myself. The soil I constructed out of fine sand and acrylic gel medium mix!

Marty C:
One of my best pieces huh? That sounds great to me! I thank you for that!

I know I didn't comment in the WIP but I did watch it unfold. :D
You have a lot of depth in the piece. I like this one a lot. I also agree with Marty, I think it is one of your best as well. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Appreciate the positive comments!!!
I'd like all the images I paint to be as good as the photo from WC library. If it wasn't anonymous, I'd want to thank the one who donated it!! :)

Bertoni I have said before that you are just so good with creating depth in your paintings and this one just proves my point again!

Angie: You're terrific! I much appreciate your view of my work! I'm in there trying!:D

Very nice! I love the sky and rolling hills. The composition is also very good, the three areas of warm neutral works perfectly, as does the repetition of fence posts.

Yes, it did turn out peaceful looking...
if I hadn't made up the scene in my mind, it would have been nice to see it in person!! :D :)
