Emerald Waters

lightsnow 18 May 2020

Painting #51. This is the first black canvas painting I create on a canvas I primed with actual black gesso rather than painting it in black acrylic. I wanted to try a black canvas painting that seemed a bit easier so I went with this one. Overall, it was fun but I was trying to follow Bob a bit too much and I find that I could have paid more attention to the contrast if I wasn't following along. Some of those trees on the edge of the water could have used a bit of dark under color to pop out more. Overall, a pleasant painting. I also tried a new method of adding highlights to the tree on the right and I think it worked out alright. 18x24

I like it. Especially the reflections in the water and the tree trunk of the big tree on the right side are my favorite parts of this one.

This was not an easy one for me and you've really nailed it! I really like the blurry background trees while the foreground trees are in focus and clear. Shoreline design creates excellent distance. BR would be very proud.

This is a great version of Emerald Waters. You've got good color distinction between the different foliage types including a nice balance of depth and detail. Well done!

Really nicely done. I like that tree on the right too.

Great work ! This episode is very popular one .
My friend CRI used Phthalo green instead of Sap green. I think it was an good idea..

Wow! Nailed it!

Honestly, I don't know why everyone seems to want to paint this one, but YOUR version is really great. I like it a lot. You did a beautiful job. Love the tree. The bright green reflections are the icing on the cake. Beautifully done!!
