Landscape With Trees, Pond and Young Girl Fishing - FINISHED



This is a memory painting I started this week - I am working on the near trees, grasses, fencing and beginning to add some sky - I am moving right to left -

The scene depicts my sister fishing in the spring-fed pond we had on our property in rural Appalachia where we grew up - We spent many a day catching pan fish from this pond ... great memories -

Painting: Oil on canvas glued to hardboard, 8 1/2 x 16; Palette: Yellow Ochre, Indian Red, Burnt Sienna, Italian Green Umber, Raw Umber, Ultramarine Blue and Cremnitz -

Comments and suggestions always welcome -

Thank you for viewing - Hud


P.S. - Added the "desaturation" image I use to view my progress ... don't know how it wound up at the top -

Skylar: Thank you ... appreciate your viewing -

You bet ... that is exactly what we had to fish with - We cut our own from the cane patch along the river bottom - I do not think those stands of cane can be found anymore ... progress I think they call it -

I love your memory paintings. They tend to have the warm glow that we all see in our imaginations when we remember those nostalgic , happy memories. Looking so wonderful already. I actually like seeing your black and white image - it looks like your values are really good!

Re: Landscape With Trees, Pond and Young Girl Fishing (WIP)

My continuing efforts on this painting -

Have considerable work left to do on the trees and sky ... plus a little on the fence yet - Pretty much satisfied with the grasses ... may have to touch up some before I call it done -

Have decided to include this "desaturation" image since the one above was added -

Comments and suggestions always weclome -

Thank you for viewing - Hud

You've depicted a walk down memory lane beautifully - Don't see much more that you can do to improve upon this - beautiful

Re: Landscape With Trees, Pond and Young Girl Fishing (WIP)

This is so lovely! You have a great sense of depth. I love that red shed in the distance. One small critique - and feel free to disregard this - the wooden fence appears to be two different sizes on the left and right sides of the road. Just a small thing. Otherwise, it's absolutely beautiful!
