Trapper's Cabin

Ninoum 01 Mar 2023

Since we are March 1st and this is the painting featured in my 2023 BR calendar, I thought putting on canvas today.

I didnโ€™t do the 2 red trees, they were taking away from the cute little red roof cabin. I def think that orange was a better choice. I did put some red little flowers in the orange tree above the cabin to compliment it.

Awesome job! And I love your cabin and the little touches of red on the tree behind it are just right.

Thank you so much Pam! That cabin was too cute to get it washed out by a big red tree above/behind it.

Beautiful painting! Love the cabin and your water and bushes look fantastic!

Hi Nancy, wonderful painting, very nice color harmony and the cabin is great๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Thank you Sandy! I had a blast to make the โ€˜lil cabin! I did most of my bushes with my 1โ€ brush. I just recently got the hang of it! It makes them look different.

Thank you so much my friend! This is one of the favorite paintings I have done.

Hi Nancy, great work, nice cabin. Well done!

Very nicely done Nancy. I too have that calendar (I have it hanging on my wall at work). This is one I'd like to redo sometime. The sky is the trickiest so you don't get a bright green sky :-)

Thank you Tom!

Thanks Matt!!! Glad to know I am not the only one obsessed with Bob! Lol! Please redo it, want to see your new version! ๐Ÿ˜€

And yes, the sky can be tricky. A green sky would look awkward indeed!

Nice blending in the sky without a hint of green! I really like the cattails and your varied vegetation too!

Thank you so much B! You saw my cattails!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I used the 1" brush and the round brush to create some vegetation variety.
