This is very pleasant, with some nice blending, especially in your sky.
Are you sure you specified the sizes correctly?....It measures more like 12x20".

Thanks all! It is a 16 x 20 canvas - honest!

you did a wonderful job on the sky. I can't tell, how thick would you say you are applying the paint just wondering?

I like the sky and the colors of the gras. Beatiful :)

Thanks for the nice words everyone. 10fingers, the sky is more layered than thick-I wet it first,used a large brush to cover it with white, then worked the colors into the wet white blending as I went until all the under colors were in place. The clouds were then dry brushed into place after that was dry.

What a lovely painting. The sky is what really caught my eye. It's so soft looking it looks like it was done in pastels. Nice work!

:wave: Beautiful! Nice sense of depth and great lighting. The grasses in the water are exquisite. I love this! :D

Wonderful! I like how the heron is swooping in low, almost blending in with the surroundings, yet still noticeable.

Absolutely gorgeous....I love the sky, but I am envious of your grasses...I can never seem to get mine to look so good. Wow!
