Evening Waterfall

Voy Kay 28 Nov 2020

'Evening waterfall' by Bob was recently painted by J.D. and it caught my attention then. I'd put it into the pipeline and today, I went for it.

Canvas used was a budget 16"x20" and in all this took me some three hours, never in a rush!
Hardest part was the grass, easiest part were the trees. The frame was 2 inches thick all around, which is a correct ratio against the canvas size.
A great painting to do so please, have a go!

For saying you struggled with the grass Voy, it looks amazing! Great detail on the trees, and I like how the waterfall runs right off the canvas. Cute way to incorporate your signature too!

Thanks Heather! The grass was a troublemaker yet those trees (according to the missus, the best I've done so far (I disagree though!!)) really came through and took over attention.
I went a little too deep with the falls and the rocks so had to improvise a little! I do hope this turned out allright!

Thanks for cheering my sweet friend, and till soon!!

Nice job! I like how you’ve done the spill over on a 2” border.

Great to see you FVG!
Indeed, at first I wanted a one inch border but after I watched Bob's version closely again, his border was bigger then that. Thus I took 2 inches instead and in the end, that turned out to be the best decison!

I actually think the grass is excellent. Very well done!

Thank you Emobrio, it's not really my specialty and maybe I had put too much variation of colour in it but .... that colour hopping can indeed occur in a wood or forest.
