Not afraid #21

A while back a few of you pointed me at Bob Rohm's book, The Painterly Approach. I already owned it, and had spent much time reading and coveting the photos, but hadn't tried any of the demos.
Went to class last week sans any material for reference, and ended up trying this:



Entirely his comp - p. 98 btw. I did add a bit of color to the sky and really toned down his bright reflections in the water. All in all a good lesson in brushwork, value and water. 12x16 on my new hand-made boards.
Thanks for any commentary!

Oh - still plan to tweak the tree line in the center - too straight - and the reflection of the white cliff - not enough of the cliff....

Re: Not afraid #21

The colors and the softness of this painting make it very serene and soothing to look at. I really like the textures of the trees. I've been really enjoying this series. Not afraid, indeed! You are charging forward without hesitation, and that's admirable. Keep it up, Linda!

Linda, I haven't had the chance to tell you, but I just love your 'not afraid's'. This one especially!

Renee, Kate - Thanks!
Wish I could take credit for more than just laying down the paint.
Perhaps I should look into a new career copying other people's paintings!

Hey Ron - thanks! And yes, sometimes you can push forward by copying a painting. Managed to stay w the big brushes on this one - a large step for me.

Re: Not afraid #21

Linda, great job on this. I took a workshop with Bob Rohm. He is patient and a great teacher. I think he would approve!
