Hi, I've been away from this forum for ages now, thanks to the start of grad school and not painting for a long time, but I managed to eke out some time over Christmas break to do a new painting, first in months. I originally did it for the Virtual Paintout blog, but missed the deadline, so didn't go up. I wanted to experiment with blending more than I have in the past with acrylics, used fan brush to layer and blend more. Not sure if I succeeded, but I still like the effect all in all. C&C very welcome.

I like this!
The colours are lovely and I like the light dissolving the trees.
