Re: Flamboyant Tree
Lavender: Thanks for the comments. I whisked through this one too fast, rush job. Not used to that yet.
Thanks Susan, maybe one day you can see this!
Thanks Maureen, this one is in one of those winding, old mountain roads.......1 hour away from my house. The mountains were easy! C-Blue and gray mix with knife and let BG color show through as highlights.
Thanks for the comments Chammi. I made the mistake of taking the pic of the artwork after I varnished it. Wrecks havoc on color saturation and strong reflections. I want to try this again, with more time. These trees sell well here, especially with an old wooden house on small stilts, a journey back into time. The red flowers have a real powerful color I didn't quite capture on this one. As the petals fall off they drop to the road and as cars pass by they get whisked on the grass, and form a cool red color on the ground. TJ
