Going Up The Country - named after my favorite Canned Heat tune :)
My only thought when I started this painting was a mountain in the upper right hand quadrant.
This painting gives me a nice feeling in my heart. I think the composition turned out OK and the individual elements of the painting are acceptable to me :) I had the most fun painting the cabin. I seem to gravitate more to cabins like this (95% brush painted) versus palette knife cabins, just my personal preference. If I had a do-over I would make the stream a bit curvier instead of a straight run. I tried to give the overall grass the appearance of being longer than a lawn. My tree branches look decent on the mighty oak tree.
As usual photo does not do the painting justice. 12" x 24" canvas. As always, your comments (especially suggestions) are desired and welcome.
