Last Stand

Coldethel 22 Feb 2023

I saw a picture of this and thought it was cool, so I tried painting it.

Love it! Looks really good!

Reflections are perfect. The light colored background trees are very nice! That tree on the left, the foliage is wow. You balanced the dark/light on it VERY well. The shade under that tree is also great and you can feel the darkness there.
Great composition and execution
Constructive:
1. That area behind the archer seems a little empty. Some bushes to tie it in would do the trick i think. Maybe some black gesso underpainting so that a little something shows through after you apply the light background paint? Gives it some more interest.
2. A little "hypnotizing" of the reflection would add to its... reflectiveness?

Looks Good 👍🏼

Love reflections. Could call it last stand as you wonder what's on its way from the left.

Looks nice, really good reflections!

Love this Coldethel

Thanks everyone, and Rob, I like the name “Last Stand”.
