Original Creation

Moose Lake Falls

Pietro1963 19 Oct 2020

I have been wanting to do this painting since I was very young.I did a sketch in my very younger days of a similar grand creature of the mountains.This painting will stay with me for ever.There are no words to describe him.He is the king!The water surrounds him and he relishes in its purity.His thirst is not easily quenched but he takes his sweet time and enjoys every drop.He has grown from a young calf to a great bull of his kind.He knows winter is near and food will be scarse.So he prepares to feed hiself and his family.They will make an appearance in coming paintins.My thisrst for wildlife is being quenched slowly.I will be adding a few more living and non living images to this creation.I love most of my paintings,but this one is surely top 3.I hope you enjoy it.God Bless.P

Ciao Folks..Thanks you much for your appreciation.I have to be honest.I do love this painting.It needs a bit more touch..(I cant figure those lines on the moose.Not on canvas?)

Dear Pietro, those lines have been a subject since long time here on the site. It has to do with potography/lighting but I forgot exactly what the solution was . Maybe somebody else in the community will provide this.
It is certainly not the canvas!!

Yes Voy..I figured as much..Thanks for voicing that..Cheers,P

Wonderful majestic giant moose! Yes the lines are due to lighting. I find that I usually get that when I photograph my paintings under artificial light. Try it with natural light next time or just play with the angles. Honestly I think getting a good photograph of the painting is the most frustrating part of the process. When I get the lighting right, the angle is wonky and then I have to crop off part of the painting or leave background in. Even the best photographers can’t capture a painting perfectly - but that makes seeing the original all the more special.

Yepp Pietro, Lilikens got it right!
I intend to photograph always with natural light, never bright but also not (too much shaded). My sun porch suits perfectly for that.
And yes, it is sheer impossible to get the angles right. I take about a dozen of pictures with different angles and lighting and then take the best one out for cropping.

Good luck!
