Toward Days End

lightsnow 06 Jul 2020

Painting # 56. I was in the mood for another oval today and something that depicted a warm July day, much like the ones we've been experiencing here in Quebec, Canada, so I tried this one. Overall, this was a pleasant painting experience. I used both the round and half-sized round brushes throughout. I've been trying my own thing lately and I think it's been working better than just trying to copy everything I see Bob do in videos. I'm still having difficulty "envisioning" the final completed painting in my mind as I'm painting. If I could do this, I would have definitely darkened the colors I used for the river. I find the blue is too light. 18x24.


Lightsnow, i think this is beautiful painting. lightness of the water does not seem to be disturbing at all due to balance of the color (sky and water).

Thank you for your kind words. I'm hoping to continue developing my "eye" and being able to see the complete painting in my mind before beginning to paint. I think that would help the finished product a lot.

I love the tree and bushes outside the oval. You did such a great job with the foliage. Sticks and twigs in all the right places. (I struggle with that every time.) Nice job where water meets land as well. I really like this painting. πŸ‘πŸ‘

@lightsnow. This is very interesting thing you mentioned! Sometimes before sleep I think about next project trying to envision it, but I fall asleep faster than I finish the sky. :) I will be looking forward to hear about your way more.

So after I posted one of my paintings, I looked at others of the same painting and found yours. Majestic Pine. You had such a great description that I clicked to see other paintings you have done. This one is a lot like majestic pine. It’s wonderful! Your ocean waves are fantastic.
