Rainforest Stream

An artwork from a recent trip to the local rainforest, pen and acrylic ink, A3 in size. Posted previously in the pen and ink forum as the underdrawing which I was not going to ink over, but there was a rather obvious smudge so I had no choice really.

Re: Rainforest Stream

This is really stunning, toowoomba, and very realistic. Looking closely I can see where the ink marks are. You did a lot of work here and have produced a real masterpiece. Nature presents us with such treasures.

Re: Rainforest Stream

This is a very nice painting of something I have seen often in the woods. Your color choices and leaning toward realism is refreshing.

Re: Rainforest Stream

I admire this work. The clever balance between "realism" and the finer "abstract" textures is what makes it art and not just a recording of the scene. The composition is excellent, deceptively simple at first glance, but if you look at it carefully it resolves a very complex scene with consummate skill. I can feel the coolth of the forest, and smell the damp, and feel the velvet texture of lichen. Outstanding !
