This is my entry for Lady Grey's Tree Whispering Art Event from this weekend... It's about an hour and 15 minutes work, using: light violet, raw sienna, phtalo blue, red oxide, sap green, thalo yellow green, cerulean blue hue, and lemon yellow...

I rushed the back abit, but I like some parts, and oh this is painted on an 8 x 12 piece of foam core...

What an interesting and unusual composition!
I like the use of color.

I loved this reference photo but didn't dare try it myself. You've got some interesting action going on with your brushes. Very aggressive feeling to me kinda like the tree is saying "I'm a leaning Willow..what's it to ya?"

The reflections mesmarize!

Wow! Thank you soooo much all... I was afraid I was gonna get buried here, there's so much traffic... and I only do acrylic about once every 2 or 3 months... but always love to hear what you real painters think...

thanks again.. Bobby :D

I really like your new tinyhead.
It's extremely interesting.

Surreal, his tinyhead is from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"; it's the "LEGENDARY BEAST OF ARRRRRGGHHH!!" that chases the python crew around in a cave... dont know if you've ever seen that movie. It's hilarious, you should check it out.

I Love the composition on this piece. I agree with one of the opinions, the splashes of yellow are intriguing. I like the tree too.... the pool and tree seem to complement each other well. This is from areference photo? You should tell us how you did/or do in that competition. Paint and post more often- I liked this.

Yep that is the Beast of Arggggggggh! ;) Thank you for the kind words on the painting... just one of life's happy accidents... but I really do love acrylic's versatility... and vibrance, one of those mediums where you want every color in existence...:crying:

Hi Bobby,
The links to the tree images are very nice!

I have to check out the depository of photographs here at WC more often. I suppose pictures are constantly being added to the collection.
