We live near you... gouache, 8" x 6"

Hi everyone!
I've been here very long ago. But I've been continuing to learn to paint in gouache... I don't know what a level of mastery I have now... but I very much like painting. And I love nature very much... especially trees, sky and water. That's all. C & C welcome



Alex

Re: We live near you... gouache, 8" x 6"

Hey Alex, nice to see your work here! Tell us more. What kind of paper is this one on, and what size is it? Did you paint it from a photograph or were you able to look at it as you painted? I think you really caught the look of the snow! Such icy textures...

Deborah

Yes, I've forgotten about what paper I used. It's w/c paper. And size of the painting is in the name of the theme I've painted it from photo though those trees are very near from my house... but it's so cold outdoor (22 below zero) that I've decided to paint indoor. This winter is very cold... brrrr

Yikes! I couldn't even get a photo if it was that cold!! I see the size now--oh duh! Sorry. I just looked at a thread over in the landscape forum where Larry Seiler shows his clothing and outdoor gear for painting in 3 below, but you have him beat by quite a bit! Paint indoors...by a nice wood stove!

Re: We live near you... gouache, 8" x 6"

Deborah, thanks for care! I'm following your advice quite well. I'm not so venturous to get my hands frost-bitten. Forecasters are promising rise in temperature... but anyway it would not be above zero. We have here approx 12 below zero in afternoon in the average... but this winter (maybe december only?) is soooo cold!

Alex

Hi Alex and welcome back. I like your tree, but not your weather forecast. If you are liking trees you might go have a look in the Watercolor Studio. They are having an exercise in painting trees in gouache and you should join in. I plan on doing some myself. Hope to see you over there.........Lenore

Re: We live near you... gouache, 8" x 6"

the more you paint, the more you see. The more you see...the more you love what you're seeing and want to paint. It is a circle that completes itself but not if you hesitate to allow it so. As artists...we allow that by yielding and cultivating the habit to paint...

Nice effort...keep it up. I think the Creator speaks to us thru nature if we but listen...and in turn, our works speak to others.

peace
