I didn’t have too much time to paint today so I went for this one. I went more with the book colors… green shades.

Another wonderful painting Nancy ! Wow !

Thank you so much Dirk! ☺️

Beautiful! Love the colors!

😃this is beautiful!!!

wonderful! love the path and mudbanks!

Thank you Sandy! Those greens right?!! 🥰

Thank you much Brian! 😊

Thanks Jessie! I am finally getting the hang of the "breaking" that top layer paint! 🥳

wow this is stunning, you're a pro already!

Awww! Thank you Jeffth! 🥰 I feel far from being a pro. But I surely try to improve every time I do a painting. I love the challenge!

Spectacular Nancy. Your range of different shades of green is awesome. Cheers

Love the greens!!!!! I have so much trouble with them! The dark really makes them pop

Very pretty Nancy and I like the colors that you used. The grassy incline on the left looks very inviting! A good place to have a picnic and "drown a worm".

Thx Randall! Yes, the dark makes them pop crazy. Always dark first to make the highlights bring everything to life! 😀

Thank you B!! I love greens and I. The book, he has only green colors going. That’s why I was craving doing this one. A picnic would be marvelous there!

I &keep returning to this painting to marvel at the detail of the foliage! I see the grasses and the different species of plants. I really like this one!

Thank you so much Brian! I had lot of fun to try different type of trees, foliage and bushes. I didn't care if it didn't look good. And that's the end result. It worked out well at the end. 😀

This is an eye-popper - just beautiful. You are a very prolific painter Nancy :)

Awwww! Thank you so much Tony. ☺️ I just try to be a little better and learn a little more each time I paint. Also, when there is something that I don’t like or bugs me, I don’t wait until I am done with the painting, I redo right away.

I'll throw this out there, as I've seen your skills develop quickly, I find myself curious to see your process, and the thought occurred to me to suggest that you try recording yourself on one of your next projects. I'm sure it would be a lot of work but food for thought! :D

I 100% agree with Jeff!

I can do a time laps video. I have a couple that I did at the beginning but I can do a new one.

I also developed my skills fast because I paint 4-5 times/week. 😉 I don’t sign a painting until I am happy with it. It takes me quite a bit of time to do a painting. I can spend 12 hours or more on one. In average, it takes me 4-6 hours. It depends of the level of difficulty.
