Re: December Landscape Challenge

Thank you for all four of these beautiful references, Paula. I'm not sure which one I like best, but I know I'll do at least one of these.

Re: December Landscape Challenge

Matthew, your piece is so beautiful. You have dolled up the sky and the trees look so solid and realistic! The power of acrylics!!

Here's a Portfolio watersoluable oil pastel on Fabriano Artist Journal 6x9 inch.
