well done, sorry if I seem to be absent still under medication, painting takes me a while, and hubby had me busy with restoring building cuboards etc.

Re: April Landscape Challenge

Interesting to see how artists in various parts of the world interpreted the Northwest/Southwest color palette, often using the colors of their own regions. Every submission in this thread is a worthy effort, though some of us could do with a little more study of the various tree species. Pines do not look much like Fir or Hemlock or Cedar. Any library will have lots of references on trees and everyone painting landscapes should study up. Myself, I know little or nothing about trees of the South, but know the ones in the Northwest because I live amongst them.

Re: April Landscape Challenge

I know I am a little late on this. However, I was planning on giving this away as a prize for an event that I am attending.
Sorry for the photo quality. C&C Welcome
