Graceful Waterfall 18 Aug 2019

I'm using a beginner set of oil paints, and because its a cheaper set, it's actually a little hydrophobic from the real oil paints. This caused the great details in the bottom left rock/cliff area, my favorite part of the painting.

The tree and rock textures in this painting are to die for! I especially love the tree in the upper right. Did you use a fan brush for the foliage? Really excellent work!

@dracula - all with the 2" brush! I did change up the coloring a bit - Bob used a black/brown combo for intermediate layer, but I used a combo of blue/red/brown. Really added some nice dimension-ing in the "lighter" shadow areas since that area is technically more lit up in the sunlight. Thanks for commenting <3

What is the size of the canvas? I love colors and details! and cant believe it is only 2 inch brush! Incredible!
It feels like classic oil painting, doesn't it? is you white titanium or zink white?

@Sunnylady thank you! Canvas is 18 x 24. All titanium white for the whites.

My word, the fall and specially the bushes and the rocks are out of this world! SUPER!
