Nice job. Colors are great and you have a good eye, (and hand) for detail.

Thank you so much Ann, Gayle, Carol, Violet, and Cami. I wasn't planning to do another, but my hubby said he would do the laundry if I painted another picture. :0 :)

Can't be a deal like that! :D

:wave: Hi Linda!

I'm so glad you were able to get back out there and do another Rocky Mountain painting! And what a beauty this is! Love the way the closest branches seem to almost brush up against us as we view the scene. So well done, right down to the tiniest details. :clap: :clap: :clap: (BTW, what a great husband - supportive of your painting AND willing to do laundry!) :D

:lol: I wish my husband would say that.

Wait, he can't say that he does the laundry anyway.

Nice job on this. The color harmony is also very good.

Thanks, Celeste, txrembrandt, and Bob. :)

About the color...I did make the center mountain a lighter teal than in real life. The painting was just too dark otherwise. I wanted the teal to contrast with the red pine a little better.

Also, I find that 2 hours seems to be the limit for outdoor painting, due to the change of lighting. Sometime I want to paint a big plein air. I guess that means going to the same spot, at the same time of day, with the same basic lighting, over the course of several days.

It's a little cracker,

Thanks for looking, Wilt.:)

Very good Linda. Your PA skills are really developing. Will you be going out again soon?

07-10-2007, 08:02 PM
Thank you, Sue. I plan to go out to the far tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula - Copper Harbor - in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and do some painting soon. I've got 3 specific places in mind: Lake Superior shoreline, Lake Fanny Hooe, and Fort Wilkins. I won't know exactly, though, until I'm inspired. ;)
