Evening's Peace

MFrederick 22 Jan 2023

Changed it up a little from bobs. Added a pond and stuff. Really love the black gesso paintings. Wanna do a lot more. Struggled with getting a good separation between the pond and the snow. Tried adding rocks a a dirt bank but didn’t like it so I covered it up and just went with a waterline. Any thoughts on how to separate them better????



This is one of my personal favorites Bob did. Nice variation you created. Well done.

Very nice! As far as the pond and separation from the snow banks, you did a perfect job. That waterline is what tells the viewer that it is the water/ice. In nature - especially after a blanket snowfall like this painting - you can not tell where the water starts and the land ends. I have a pond on my property so I know this to be true 😁

Well thank you guys! I’ll take the pond owners word for it. Appreciate the comments!!
