I started this one out with Atelier acrylics but I didn't like working with them, so switched to Brera. It's on clayboard 8x10.

Bobbi, you do the most beautiful landscapes....I just sigh.

Very nice and quite reminiscent of the English Landscape painters like Constable. The luminous quality of the paint and the light on the water is absolutely amazing. Very nice in MHO.

I really like the movement in the water and it pulls you right into the distance

Diane....thank you so much!
Howard, wow....I like being mentioned in the same sentence as Constable. Isn't he the one that said to leave little holes in the trees for the birds to fly through? Thanks for your kind comment.
Carrie...love the claps!
TeAnne..glad you like it.
Nayana....what a pretty handle. If that's your name, it's lovely, if it's not your name, it's still lovely. Thanks for commenting.
Dreamz...I'm relieved you could tell it's water. Sometimes people think my water is a road! Thanks!

Here is a slightly different version of the painting. Sometimes I like to do a similar scene several times.

The lighting is stunning on the first as is the composition.

The second is almost as good but I find the purple line to be a little too solid and would benefit from being broken a little with the sky colour.

Interesting Carol! I also prefer the first one. I think I did a better job of breaking up the distant trees. Thanks for your input.

I too prefer the first one. I can see the trees in the background (or my imagination can create them from what you have there.) This one doesn't have that same luminosicty as the first.

Definitely the first one...because the water is spectacular!! Your misty trees fading out is super!! THIS IS BEAUTIFULLY DONE!!

I like the first one best too......LOVE the water! :thumbsup:

Oh, wow! I agree the first one is fantastic! But the second one is good too. I think it has the feeling of being a little later in the day.

Thanks Darla, Serena, and Judy.
In all fairness to my second painting that I posted, I had trouble getting a good digital shot. Also, it has more glazing and for some reason the camera just wants to read a glazed area as a dark shape.
I'm going to do some more testing with the Atelier paints over the weekend. Maybe I didn't give them a fair chance. If I get lucky, I'll post something....or head for the garbage can. :)

The first one is beautiful, I feel like running away to this place. Not to mention when I see it at an angle on my screen, the water glows. It is simply lovely.
