Re: Oil-from-life challenge, Sept. 2018: optional "small" theme!

Geoff, that looks like some pretty good dimensions you have there, would have taken me far longer than an hour to have gotten all the angles to work like that.
Ronsu, I like it, especially the middle colours and texture in the first.
Ju-Ju, thats lovely, those grasses especially.
We have amazing sunsets here and I REALLY want to paint them but its so hard finding time anytime atm let alone at the right time so I shall just have to keep studying them for now.

Ju-Ju, you had fun with that dragon didn't you! there's something whimsical about the pose, like it's on holiday from all things dragon. really good painting, i like all elements but i love the sand! is it alla prima or layers? my next serious, non-study job is exactly that, and on a well developed painting. scary. you've done it so well!

equinespirit, i know how you feel. the trees have half the foliage left and i had no time painting the most beautiful season with the brightest colors.

Re: Oil-from-life challenge, Sept. 2018: optional "small" theme!

Thanks, Equiniespirit. And yes, Ronsu, I had a blast with him! But he was there to start with; I was just lucky enough to catch it. Clouds always have something good going on. It’s mostly alla prima but I couldn’t keep the grass from mixing—too much paint on the canvas, I’m sure—so I went back once it was mostly dry and enhanced them some. And, of course with the brush I my hand, I had to play with the clouds a little more. I’m looking at it this morning and think I may soften the center clouds even more.

Your grasses do look really good. I think the lack of desired depth might be the hill in the bg: it’s still got too much chroma, and it just barely peeps up beyond the trees. That gives a fairly straight green line that visually blends with the trees.

Re: Oil-from-life challenge, Sept. 2018: optional "small" theme!

thank you Ju-Ju! the blob in the background is a complete oversight, an artefact from sky painting. i'd sort of stopped thinking about it, it's good you caught it! the funny thing is, there is a hill there. my neighbours woud interpret the image that way but in reality, last year was it's final show for a couple of decades as the woods grow. curious how it sneaked into the painting! maybe i should keep it w appropriate treatment...?
