Meadow Stream

I changed some parts of this one compared to the original. And as I did once before I painted the roof of the barn in pure vermillion 😂 I think the little stream is okay, but the grass is really bad. It seems my cadmium yellow is not opake enough to really stand out, I wished I had used a more dark undercoat than pure Sap green. But at least I learned something.

I like this rusty roof and path that has almost disappeared to the old barn..
the stream is really nice and looks refreshing!

Thanks Sunnylady. I felt some color was necessary here, thus the red roof.

I agree with Sunnylady. Besides you clouds express depth very well.
But you should practice background trees.
When I did this episode used a black gesso undercoat.
With using black gesso you can save the paints.

Thanks for the hints Jin7, yes I totally agree that a dark undercoat would have been better here, but I learn from each painting.
