I taught an acrylic workshop last wekend and used this painting as my demo for using stippling and short strokes.

We had a really great time.

I love those purples against that green. I also like the stippling look in the grasses. Maybe one of these days you will do a demo for us, hint, hint. :D

Thank you all. Don't know about the demo. I don't have much free time. I do have WIP's on my web site. Perhaps that would do as a substitute
Love,

Thank you Ann. I try to have a good WIP going all the time on the specials page of my web site. Sometimes it is oil and sometimes acrylic or casein. I always put the palette I am uing with each painting.

Love,
Linda

Nice colours and technique. When first starting out painting I think we have all at one time or another made the mistake of trying to include as much detail as we can see in a photograph and without the technical skills the results end up looking like... well, I won't say it!. This technique shows that you don't have to be detailed in your paintings.

Glenn,
It is easy to overwork a painting. Generally, I like to give just enough information to show that I know what I'm doing without belaboring the process. I like a fresh lively look to my work without fussiness. We all have different approaches. Some folks like tight detail. Others don't.
Thanks for the kind comments.

Love,
Linda
