~~sigh~~ I wish I could put color on that fresh looking! Has a nice dappled sunlight quality that is very appealling. :)
(When you say "doorskin", is that the same as luan?)

Thank you so much everyone! You guys just inspire me to paint even more! :)

Damar: Im not sure if it is like that, but doorskin is like a pretty thin wood. Can paint on either side.

ajcastro: Sorry, im not sure what you said, but im gonna assume it was a compliment, so thanks!

decoratorgirl: Thanks! I am using Liquitex Acrylics, i paint with a brush, sometimes just one. Unfortunately, i don't have any time to really put together a tutorial on how i paint right now, as i am really busy, but maybe in the future if it becomes high in demand :P

Thanks again everyone, feel free to comment still! :)

Justin.

I believe ajcastro said that it's stupendous and asked what the measurements are.

Lovely markmaking and use of light and shadow! It makes me want to paint outside...if only it weren't so unbearably hot and humid where I am!

Nice job!
What is the surface again and is it primed?
Painterly painting are such an inspiration.

Hi Justin, I like this very much.
Are you using black or something else for the dark bits in the leaves and on the tree trunks? :wave:

Thanks Margaret_59, actually i used no black whatsoever in this painting, i purposely used no black on this one :) And now officially and going to try and never touch black again, except to sign my paintings.

Nice style and subject matter. Use no Black Ever (except siggie)?
I'm with you on that one. It seems to infect everything when it's used doesn't it? At least when I use it.

Great painting Justin. I love your choice of colours - they are so 'clear' (if that makes any sense).
What colours did you use in your palette?
