Hi all
This painting was inspired by a photograph. I liked its simplicity in composition although this was deceptive when it came to painting. I called it “Solitude”
Medium: Acrylics
Size: 80cm x 60cm 31.5” x 23.5”

Hi Bertoni
Thank you
There are some tonal losses in the sea, sky and leaves due to the reduction process which is a shame :crying: but it is a large reduction so some loss was inevitable :( . Hopefully not enough to detract a great deal from the painting itself.
Take care
Dave

This is really really nice. For something so simple there is a lot to look at. Colours are wonderful too.

Hi Caroline
Thank you
I tried to give a sense the grass was dancing in the breeze.

Hi Carol
Thank you
The colours are a little richer with more tones then shows and there is a hint of sunlight striking the edge of the leaves which also doesn't show very well.
Take care

Hi Dave: I love this one, it is so clean. I like the way the grass flows in the forground. I is just a lovely picture all the way around. You do such lovely work, and this is one of the really good ones. Jan 409
