Well this was fun. Painting the gesso palm trees was great, experimenting with different shades of gray to achieve depth. Then adding the oils. Love the misty prehistoric atmosphere. Maybe I should add a dinosaur somewhere in the background. Building the cypress trees was fun. The foreground was a bit of a challenge. Love the way the water looks with the black gesso underneath. I was adding the spanish moss really slowly, checking the color so that it doesn't stand out too much. All in all I'm really happy with this one. I was planning to paint it for so long, so I'm really happy I finally managed to paint it.
