Re: Misty Morning On the River -WIP

Caroline: Thank you for your visit ... finished the painting a couple of days ago ... just now posted - I too, was wondering where it was going ... not that pleased with the result ... but it could be worse

Have been concentrating on the portrait of my wife, Death Of A Lily, which you have seen in its early stages - Since this month is the anniversary of her death, I would like to bring it to a conclusion ... been struggling with it now for two years -

Again, thank you so much for stopping by -


Hud

Re: Misty Morning On the River -WIP

Hi Hud, it is not an easy subject but I think you have conveyed the atmosphere of a misty morning on the river extremely well! I like the white light of the sun appearing over the top of the trees. Sometimes a painting needs a focal point, yet this piece is very much a painting about the stillness and peace of the mist.

I do wish you all the best with your Death of a Lily painting Hud.

Re: Misty Morning On the River -WIP

Another beautiful piece Hud - I can feel what you felt when you first viewed this scene - gorgeous painting!

Death Of A Lily: A very difficult, emotional piece to paint - I also wish you the best on this painting

Re: Misty Morning On the River -FINISHED

This is wonderful, Hud. Back when I used to paint more, I once tried to paint a foggy morning scene. It was incredibly difficult, and I believe I never finished it, nor did I keep the uninspiring WIP! I think you've captured that quiet stillness of a foggy morning beautifully with this painting. I also like the warm, glowing light. Very well done!

This must be a really difficult time for you, being the anniversary of the loss of your Charlotte. I know you've been working on Death of a Lily for some time, and I know it will be poignant and full of your heart and feeling once finished. Take care of yourself, friend.
