Continuing to explore light and color.
C&C welcome as always.
Absolutely gorgeous! This one really "breathes".

Another beautiful painting. As always, I love the sky and the reds in the shadows.
When are you going to start teaching gouache lessons? ;D

Thanks, All! Wow, I didn't know what to think when I posted this. I think this one looks better in real life. I've put the first couple of coats of varnish on it, and will post a photo of it framed sometime the next few days. It will be the first one varnished and framed, so we'll see what happens.

very nicely done - quite an etheric feel

Here's what it looks like in a frame.

That frame is great. It fits the painting perfectly!

Absolutely Stunning work, Well done.:)

what kind of varnish are you using? so, no glass needed?
06-07-2007, 08:48 PM
That is great Ralph. I'd say you graduated to 8 x 10 with flying colors!

I like this.. your doing great!

I like it a lot. It's interesting that you have a diagonal (the creek) going to a corner. A lot of composition 'experts' would say that this leads the eye right out of the painting. It doesn't do that to me. In fact, what happens is that the creek leads my eye into the painting from the corner.

Thanks, Meg. Kind of cool to actually see one framed like this.
lil'artist, thank you! I appreciate the comments.
Wendy, I'm using Krylon's Kamar spray varnish. There are differing views about varnish, which we'll leave to the thread I posted a while back. My intent is for anything larger than 5x7 to be framed without glass (just my personal preference).
Hi Selene. Thanks! I'm currently working on an 11x14, and having a lot of fun with it.
Hey there, Vicky. Thank you. I'm working at it.
Richard, I'm glad you like this one. I know I should avoid going to a corner, but just can't resist it. I'm working on a new one that does the same thing, and I hope it works as well.
Excellent piece of work, having such a large area of dark colour in the top right corner was a brave thing to do and it worked so well.
Best wishes, Ken.

Ken, I guess I tend to bend the rules occasionally... sometimes I get away with it, and sometimes I don't. I often take a close-in viewpoint, and with landscape, sometimes you can't avoid that dark area overhead. Thanks for the nice comments.

This painting has so much in it, it would certainly be one I could live with. The reds are a bold move but work very well.
