I put my 1st version in thumbnail
I did my 1st version just about 2 years ago when I first started painting. It was the original colors Bob did so, you know me - I had to change it up this time! It is such a fun painting if you take the time to do the underpainting. AND the underpainting is gesso which dries so quickly that you can EASILY go over anything you do not like before you go to the oils step. One this one I did my trees like the original. BUT I did change up the bottom half. IT WAS NOT SOLID BLACK. I did it like SPLASHES OF AUTUMN S25E4, "splotchy" because I knew it would show nicely through the gold. Oh yes, the "gold" is Indian yellow inspired by one of my Bob favs, Golden Glow. Bob Aliz crimson + sap green = brown is the "burnt orangish" color. also used sap green, vd brown, titanium white, black.

Thank you both!

Great work. Beautiful

Excellent job, so pretty

Awesome painting Pam!

Great color scheme! The rocky stream is interesting and mysterious.

Incredible look at the big tree compared to your first version. I just love her work.. such talent.

Pam do you recommend high gloss varnish for finisher or like a flatter varnish. Some of my paintings are getting ready. Any advice would be helpful…

🤩 What a masterpiece Pam!!! I love everything about it. My fav element is the golden color. I would hang this one on my wall in a heartbeat!

So gorgeous Pam! Just love all your details and color choices!

Appreciate everyone's compliments! By posting my older painting with this one, I am hoping to encourage the "newbies". Practice practice and get comfortable with your tools. I knew Nancy would like the golden orange color, her favorite! And to Charles, I use a gloss (Gamblin, I think gamvar? I am not at home right now to look. You can use when paintings are dry to touch.) I like it very much. I chose gloss because I sell or commission my paintings and most clients prefer gloss look. I have a specific vanishing brush as well.

Thanks Pam I will look into that brand.
