Snowy Solitude

Toadi 05 Jan 2021

Well here it first painting. My middle trees look weird. I made the sky pink to match my Mom's walls. Give me all the help you can please. The right tree I used a fan brush for highlights and the left tree I used a 2 inch. Makes them look different plus I was trying to see which one I liked more. Honestly I like them both..LOL So let me know what you think of this....thanks

Well done for a first Toadi! Congratulations!!

You tried very well with those trees, be careful not to overkill them with highlights. Tom and Forestvuegallery, to name a few, are great (tree) examples for this recreation. Have a look and enjoy!

I love your fan brush tree 😍 And the sky is very soft and beautiful. Good job for your first try 👍

Very nice work for your first painting! Really good blending in the sky and the water looks realistic. The darkness behind the trees sets them out and both brushes worked for you. Looking forward to your future creations!

Thank you everyone!! I'm already looking forward to the next one!!!!

You nailed the frozen water. I did this a week ago, and really struggled, so great job.
The fan brush snow gives a more heavy snow just fell effect I think, the other feel more like a dusting thats been sitting a while (In my opinion).
I always look at the painting I want to do, and then at the community paintings that go with it, just to see how others took it on, and I find that helps me.
Look forward to seeing more from you!

thank you Mrs C, I will definitely be painting more, I got the bug, LOL
