I had a recycled 12"x16" black canvas to spare so decided to paint this recreation this morning. In all, a 90 minutes endeavour for something that I was rather scared off at first yet what turned out to be not a difficult painting at all.
Hardest part here was trying to highlight the trees sufficiently and to control the space to be used for all items. I specially had troubles with the latter so there is no lake at the bottom. Pity!!
What really failed however where the tree highlights and the base colour application. Reason for that is the very dark colouring overall and the terrible light reflection in my office, where I painted this. Only afterwards did I spot all the very shaky evergreens, not my normal style I can assure.
