I love the spontaneity in this one! The bold brush strokes on the trees are great and very nice use of color! :thumbsup:

I betcha this is a study for a larger painting-- am I right? This is such a large subject, you would have the opportunity to express variations in hue, tone, and saturation by using a larger format. I say, go for it! 20 by 28!

Thanks Janet and Karen.........you are correct.......I'm doing a series of small paintings in order to hone my meager skills before I go on to larger sizes. Also at the moment I don't have any large panels.....only canvas. I've just about given up on painting canvas. :)

Large panels are nice to paint on. Hewever they are a pain to gesso, heavy to lift, and they will warp if not suitable cradled. Why don't you like canvas? (I like smooth canvas...)

Hi Karen......I don't like canvas because it gives way to the brush, and because it's not smooth enough for my liking. I don't like the canvas surface itself, with all those little indentations.:D At least that's the way I feel about the canvas I have..... medium texture cotton duck. :)
