Fairly pleased with this one. Not happy with my mountains but overall I like it. She used a lot of thin paint for this one which I kinda liked.

Quite some depth in the painting. Great idea to finish the birches with white and brown iso black.

The cast shadows on the foreground trees give this painting an extra boost of realism to add to the wonderful lighting. It feels like the sun is just coming out after a heavy rain. Nicely done!

Superb lighting and grass! I'm working on painting proper grass myself. Care to share how you went about making this painting? Did you actually use the liquid black? I was thinking of just using black acrylic for the dark undercolor and adding highlights to that. I'm really interested in how you went about painting all those nice grassy highlights!

Super nice light and shadows! It has such sharpness and depth. I was thinking that lighting is like 30-40 minutes before sunset. Very nice feel of the sunlit objects color! Grass is great as well with the shadows and highlights and that darkness under the trees add the feel of the depth and space.

Thanks a lot for all of the kind words! The shadows on the ground behind the trees were my favorite part of this painting.
I did not use liquid black, I had some cheaper quality black oil paint that I added some linseed oil to that worked well as an analog.
As far as the grass, I just followed the video. The guest instructor used a lot of liquid white to thin the paint for the grass which was an interesting technique.
