I enjoyed Painting with Gesso, it makes it so much easy to paint the background trees.

Very true, tried that myself yesterday, much to my satisfaction. A must do is to use quality stuff for that gesso, like 'Bob Ross', 'Amsterdam' etc... Otherwise (like in the 'Action' stores) the gesso is too fluid and it's hard to paint descent trees with. Well done Patoex, looking forward to future paintings from you!

The light in the background and the color variations on the grass are superb and the 2 trees in the foreground are magnificent, another beautiful painting.

I really like your mighty evergreens.

Hi voy,thank you for your advice, i used the black and white Gesso from Bob's its better than the gesso from the action store.

Thank you Chris for your kind words, I really enjoyed to paint this one with the Gesso.

Thank you roving.

Your trees in the foreground are fabulous!

Thank you very much, i appreciate it.
