coloring is fantastic .. the illusion in perspective makes the pond sit tilted downhill and that can't happen with still water. A couple of short horizontals in the bush line would help correct the illusion.

Beautiful Wes. I need a lesson from you in painting those tiny tree branches.

beautiful painting. soft and luminous. i like the perspective..i feel like the branches on the near tree could be more fine and delicate as they extend..or be even more softened. just feels like the tree could be pushed to another level. i love the painting and feel free to ignore me.

Yep, I agree with Gilberte,
What an atomosphere. :clap:

Reminds me of the Discovery.Com commercial a few years back: "Hello meteor, etc... ah, the atmosphere, ah." ;) LOL

I've been practising my plein air for this years events in the late summer, usually with Mark Coulter & Jim Larimer, but was snowed out in Estes Park the day I started this.

The tree branches were done with a small striping brush and mostly smoothed out with a small filbert, then flat sided the filbert softly around those to allude to smaller branches.

Thankee,

Wes

I see bone chilling cold. Good on the fog and the emptiness beyond. Had you thought of adding some taller weeds directly in the foreground so that your trees look more balanced...a triangle of sorts?

Very subtle and beautiful. Love the blues and violets.

The lower branch of the tree on the right and its reflection in the water create a circle in the painting that is a little distracting. :cat: . Just my opinion but nice work overall.

It's as beautiful and quiet as a morning prayer, Wes. :)

Yes, a circle--deliberate; a hole for the sun to jump through, much like a cicus tiger through a hoop... yet just missing in its reflection; it would be less distracting without those lines Gin mentions to block out the sun's glow through the clouds. Perhaps this makes more sense:

Tam, I couldn't think of an apt title for this, thus, Colorado Fog; I like Morning Prayer much better: Thank you! :)

And thank you all for your time, comments & crits,

Wes
