Forest Fields in Bloom

Hammipaints 29 May 2023

Those forest Waterfalls got me hooked! This one is my biggest painting yet on 60x100cm. The midground tree in the middle was supposed to be a birch tree but it proved to be too dominant so I changed it.
The sprinkle of color throughout the scene also was a last minute addition which I think was the right one!

Wow. Amazing

It is beautiful and great change from birch to the normal dark bark tree. This indeed moves the eyes to the waterfall area.
I would suggest to add intermediate trees on the left(where the path takes) still because that area seem closer but more foggy than the waterfall and pulls attention away due to still quite a high contrast. At waterfall we can see details but in the area on the left it is a dense fog.

It is best of all the studies of this topic with forest waterfalls!
How was it to go with such a big size canvas?

Beautiful colours !

Wonderful work Marc!


Very nice

Wonderful Marc, I like the whole painting but the two lower falls the most.

Beautiful job!

So beautiful Marc! The 2 focal points are great... 1st one the waterfalls are the eye catcher. Well executed, the 2nd one more subtle but can't miss it, your path. I'd love to sit there to reset!

Awesome work! Really superb!

Thanks a lot people!

@Sunnylady: Yep I absolutely see what you mean. I guess I was a little lazy there hahaha.
It actually was a lot of fun though it took quite an amount of time. I was ready to use my 2 inch brushes but kind of stuck witch my 1 inches again. But yeah I'm pretty fond of the result, especially the leavework. I think I can work my way up to even bigger canvases step by step :)

@Nancy: Thank you! Glad you mention the path! I kind of tend to put one of those in almost every painting I do now and was wandering if it might be a bit much
