Mills- Oil 8x10- Ken Tiessen

This 8x10 Oil on panel is a composite of several images taken on a trip to Rocky Mountain Park CO. I'm still adjusting to some new methods, but like the process.

You do the objects in supporting roles (rock faces, floating logs, etc.) so well. The make viewing your paintings such a pleasure. Gary

Very nice paintting.
I like the light on the water and logs that are floatting near by.

A lovely balance between the floating logs & action in the distance - Reflected light on the water surface leads the viewer into the scene nicely !

Hi Mikael- Thank you! It is a very calm lake except, of course, in the event of a wild off-season storm.

Re: Mills- Oil 8x10- Ken Tiessen

Thank you Michael! It's from a few shots of the place and much has been edited in composite and painting- I'm glad you feel it balanced.

The uppermost floater has been sharpened up a bit and the darks behind the main tree cooled and darkened- will post an updated pic soon.
