Shadow Pond

dracula 28 Feb 2021

I wasn't so sure about this composition when I was preparing the canvas with black gesso. I think I might have fared better just using a black canvas from the beginning and using plain titanium white in the center. I also think I would not have put in the middle tree if I were to do it again.



Wow. That big tree on the left is just... so alive. Love it. Beautiful.

The trunk on the tree on the left is so realistic. The shadows on the pond perfect.


I like your color palette

This has the deep woods feel and the many shades of color used in your leaves is so realistic and beautiful.
Your use of gesso with the white lightening and softening looks great.

Awesome fog state with back light!
