Winter Moon

Littlefishy 01 Feb 2024

Painting #5. So same as the last, oil on 18x24 canvas. I added a few more mountain peeks. I paid more attention to the perspective. Smaller trees and bushes in the back, making them larger in the front. Definitely helped show distance. I still covered all my dark with my white highlights but you know, I've learned something with every painting. Time well spent as far as I'm concerned. I used a fan brush for the land/snow and I find myself preferring it over a pallete knife for land and snow. I think I got a good application of liquid clear down, and I think that's why I was able to get more white paint to stick for my highlights. That and paint thinner. Next I'm going to do the hour special, and after that I'm going to paint mountains, just a fun sky and mountain range after mountain range until my canvas is full.

Really nice moonlit sky !

Nice work. I think you have found a good approach by taking out individual parts again and again and practicing and practicing. I did it that way tooπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ

Nice work. I like the bushes, the pale blue and white is very pretty.

Good work! I agree that changing up the bush/tree sizes really helped to improve the perspective.

Very nice

Super! The moon is awesome! I love your whit bushes a lot! Bob says that in Alaska, those white bushes exist when it becomes so cold that the frost covers everything this way. It's called "Ice Fog".
