Golf is a walk in the park. The title of this is Spring Beauty. It is modelled after a famous golf hole in Georgia. 20X30 acryllic on hardboard. What do you think? I kind of like it (being a golfer) so be gentle with your criticism. Thanks.

This looks excellent to me, I really like all those nice flowing shapes you've created, nice work. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Pretty nice. Agree bout the flowing lines. It really does flow. I like painting park pictures and stuff. I play golf but not ball golf. I play Disc Golf. Kinda the same rules as ball golf only with freesbie type Discs and baskets instead.
You've got the course down perfectly if ya ask me. Very good!

Don't worry, its gonna be all right....

I hate golf but I love this

(hope I haven't offended,)

This great painting makes me feel a bit religious.

It is what you say! a golf course! Give this to my father and he would cherish it!

Something exciting is about to happen! ( I think I can I think I can !)

Pity such a beautiful scene is so often the stage for such bitter human anguish http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif!

tim,,, i think of rolling greens when i think golf courses. i feel your paintings places more emphasis on the background. i would have dropped the view to show more green and less sky/background.....{M}

No you haven't. I love golf and I love this. Can't wait for Augusta. Is this from Amen corner?

Whatever can find room in the human heart, as emotion, idea, and purpose, whatever it is able to frame into a deed ... can constitute the many-colored content of painting. Hegel.

You guys are awfully nice I am proud that you like it. It is from #13 at "amen corner". I especially appreciate the" hate golf love this " response- a very great compliment to me. I love golf but golf has no heart- art does, and both have the power to teach us about ourselves. I've got a few more if you care to see them. (some undualting greens also)

A golf course is difficult to do. Whenever I watch golf on tv I think about how hard it would be to do a landscape of it because of the mass of green and consistently mowed field. You made the boring interesting here, and managed to conquer the challenge with ease. Truly an ace.

I can only echo the "nice flowing" comments, Tim. I thought this was #13, but from a rather unusual angle. The more normal view is from the fairway at the left. Nice work!

Having been a lifelong golfer, I've been tempted to try painting golf courses but, frankly, they intimidate me. I have intense interest in them as a golfer, but I think I would find it hard to make them interesting in a painting. You have done that.

You are correct about some technical difficulties. I can't believe how hard grass is to paint. What I have found is that with acryllics I can underpaint the grassy areas with dark and light contours and even grass blade type scratchy marks. Then overpainting with transparent greens , yellows blues and minty whites. One thing to remember, grass is not really green all over. Don't be afraid to use lots of different colors.
Thanks for your appreciation.

I find it odd that impulse knew amen-corner
and even odder that it made me feel religious, because I did not know about the amen.
talk about asynchronous teleconferencing!

Beautifully done. It's the first of the three holes known as Amen corner at Augusta National Golf Course in Augusta Georgia. That's where the Masters golf tournament in played every year. I would like to communicate with you regarding possibly working together. Write me at [email protected] and I'll provide more info. your reply

Beautiful job! It looks like the green on #12, looking back from the 13th tee box. I might be wrong however.
