I think this is another success, Wayne... should be shown as a companion piece to the "Grey Day" one...

thank you ..
Gerry .. orange and green make for interesting lovers.

Cath~ you will never see mud if I see it first .. it will get the old scrape down .. I used a brush on the other and had a bunch of piant left over as the usage drops when using a brush.

JustjoGA .. right you are.

MY TURN. THIS gave me a little heart palpitation....really !!
I think its hard to create the glow that fall imerses us in...I mean, I think "put away the yellow"
but you got to and to add the green blue that only our brain can cope with when fall shines its brightest.
frame it.

<b> Nice autumn scene...love the flow of the ground...Oil or acrylic? Anyway...its easy to enjoy this piece...
one picky note... The two trees (pines) in the right top jump out at me...possibly one more needed behind them or to the right?
Anyway...love the use of oranges and warms agains the water.

wow those leaves are ralistic in the forground,you into Max Ernst?...... the grass area doesnt seem to work i have no clue how to do grass(painting ..) mess with some perspective tricks to try to make it go into the distance.my favorite is 2 point perspective with the pints at horizan line off the canvass..ya gotta experiment with this 2 point stuff.try this if its dry.......take a roll of masking tape,put it on your table ,take a ball point pen,and hold the point against the roll of tape.....now rotate the tape and you get a swell line around the tape.put the tape on something that will allow you to hold a sharp blade (roofing knife with changable blades is awsome) do not cut yourself !!!!!!!!! hold the blade still and roll the tape....this way you can make niffty thing masking tape like 1/8 inch etc.....use the skinny tape to draw the perspective lines from you 2 points(this way you dont mess up your painting) what you should get is a kinda dumb checker board grid big on the bottom small at the horizen. if you do this alot.,you cant drive cause youre seeing perspective grids every where..... sorry about this boring deluge....it wasnt a critique but more of a way to play with your painting without destroying it.but the old perspective tricks can help sometimes,check out some mid eastern art ,,,,some of it doesnt give a sh*t about perspective and its really trippy,like stuff that doesnt work but does dots a go go

<b> loved your reply to this one Dots...
sometimes I use pin striping tape...to do the same thing..
They sell it at auto parts stores...comes in very thin widths..
just a thought.
Nice painting and fun critique tooo.

best regards, therese

thank you Paint On Brush ..

dots ..
I looked at Max Ernst many years ago .. if I remember he did red horses and blue dogs etc .. loads of color but well balanced.
Perspective .. now that's an experiment.

therese .. yes, odd numbers are usually more attractive.
