Whispering Stream

I really enjoyed learning from Bob while creating this painting. I was afraid to add the large foreground trees and went with the cat-tails instead. I'm happy with some elements in this painting but see some obvious areas that need more work. The overall experience was fantastic though and I look forward to more time with Bob to continue learning!

I appreciate the encouragement, davidF!

This is one of the best versions of this painting on TIB! This style of painting really appeals to me. I want to paint this one next and will use your painting for reference if that's okay?

Absolutely, Cronenberg89. I'm flattered that you would consider that. If I was going back over it today, I would spend more time on the rocks on land and in the water. Other than that, I wish my cattails were sharper, they look a bit messy to me. The water has much richer blues in person, I'm not sure why it's so white in this photo. I still love the trees and marbled sky though and I'm sure Bob would be proud of my efforts! Thanks again for your encouragement!
