Autumn Mountain

Umagaan 18 Feb 2021

This painting was on my to-paint list for quite some time now. I was a bit afraid of the clouds, but I finally gathered the courage and painted it. All in all it was quite fun, I love the colors of the sky, I really liked painting the mountains and I think I finally got the hang of painting the clouds. I think the hills should be a bit more greenish. The big tree was a bit of a challenge, I put too much alizarin crimson in the background color so it's not really dark enough. Maybe the shoreline on the left should be a bit lower to create more contrast to the middle part. Loved painting the leafless tree.
All in all I'm happy with the result, and the painting already has a reserved space in my living room.



The branches on the leadless tree are incredibly nicely done! You are a master of a liner brush!

The depth on the green bushes on the right is really good! So is everything else...

Incredible mountains!

Sunnylady thank you šŸ˜ Lately I spent quite some time practicing painting trees so I guess it paid off šŸ˜

jeremiah11719 thanks šŸ˜Š The background color for these bushes was very dark and I tried to really think about individual plants, their shape and color, which one is in front etc. And I think it's really important not to kill all the dark areas.

joha59 thank you šŸ˜ I tried to put a bit more details in them to give them more depth and I'm really happy with the result šŸ‘

I agree - that leafless tree is perfection and your bushes have such depth and detail! A beautiful piece of work.

The mountains look great. I loved the bushes and the dry tree. I congratulate.

This is stunning. I can only wish Iā€™d be half as good as your are
