Umagaan 06 Mar 2021

Second time around this one was no easier. I just really really don't get along with liquid clear. I tried not to put too mouch if it on the canvas, just enough so that I could spread the sap green a bit more easily. But even so, I had trouble painting with liner brush - no matter how much paint thinner I added. And then I tried to paint the trees with my brand new half size round brush. And realised I don't really know how to use it. Didn't like the trees. So I scraped them off and fell back to my trusted method with the ordinary one inch brush. I didn't really like the "mountain method" for painting the big tree the first time around, so this time I used liner brush and added some leaves. My favorite part of the painting is the path. All in all, it was not easy and it took me quite a long time to finish it, but in the end I'm satisfied enough with the result. I painted this one for my coworker, she really liked my first version and asked to paint one for her. Well, obviously this one is quite popular because another friend asked me to paint it for her as well. I guess I'll see if third time really is the charm.

You improved Umagaan, the contrast with the shy background and the middle trees and front bushes is very appealing.
The giant tree really shows character with its funky trunk and branches.
I do miss peapod there! 😥

Thanks Voy. I might add peapod once the painting is dry. Yesterday I was a bit too tired for precision painting 😉

I hope you will Umagaan, a shy silhouette would be the cherry on top of these creations! 👍

You know the funny thing is my brother also asked me where's the squirrel when he saw this painting. So I guess I'll really have to add it. 😉

this is cool!!! The path is amazing and sunk right down in there. The knothole is impressive. All the green and yet you see details, amazing!!
