Hello Everybody!!!!

Been away for a while, still painting away though. Was on a retreat painting again last weekend, and look what creeped onto my canvas

Hi Patricia,
Nice work, the foreground leaves lead the eye in to the centre of the work. Good detail, well done.

Thanks for the comment, but I have to blame mother nature for the composition. Here's the ref pic.

It's lovely Patricia - could you give us an idea of size please? :)

Sorry for not including size info, it's been a while and I forgot. It's on gallery wrap canvas, 12" x 12".

I've only been working on small canvases so far, anybody have any hints for the daunting large ones? I'm scared that I won't mix enough of the shades I need, and the colours will be off.

At one time I had only painted small (12"x16, around there). So the first large one I did was 5'x5'--talk about daunting! I was scared to death! The only way to do it is just to plunge in--sink or swim!
