Iā€™m curious what you think of this one?



I think it's beautiful. Love the stones, the big tree in front, the bright light. I think you'll have to change your nick name soon šŸ˜‰šŸ‘

Great composition, colours and reflections, also the stones are marvelous!

Very nicely done. I think I prefer it to the original.

I haven't tried this yet, so am looking for tips. Your diffused light is great! How did you achieve it?

Thank you everyone! Painting this made me so happy!!

Martha, I actually made a happy accident when doing the light. I made a white spot with the gesso initially, which Bob does not say to do in the video, He has you add T white to the center of the light, and then blend out, which was where I made my accident. I made the spot too low, and it looked weird, so I went over it with Pthalo Blue and a little Prussian Blue to move it up. To blend, I just taped around in a circle, rather that making strokes. To get the rays, I pulled in one direction. Hope this makes sense.

This is beautiful!

I love it!!! The color from that water!

did you use the fan brush for the tree leaves? Vey good painting, I like your accident!!

Toadi, Yes, I used the fan brush for the tree in front.

Stunning! The water and the mist/light around the trees is so well done.

The light rays are especially nice -- thanks for explaining what you did!
