Landscape- re-worked


I posted this painting a little while back with wip photos. After looking at it for a bit I decided it needed more work. I went back in added sky holes and more color in the trees and reflections. Let me know if you like the changes. It's in oil on a 16 X 20 stretched canvas.

Hi Barb,
I like the rework. Those poor birdies have to have a few holes to fly through. One comment that one of my mentors would point out...as a rule the holes should be darker than the sky color. If you observe them in real life they really are a bit darker. I can't tell from the photo if they are darker or not. Just a thought. Nice work.

Thanks Debra, I know the sky holes are supposed to be darker, I think I made them a bit darker but I'll look closer. I think sky holes are tricky to paint, sometimes they look like stuck on blue things. Painting is sure a challenge but so rewarding when it goes right.

This landscape is looking great, Barb. My mind glazes over and I get cold sweats trying to paint landscapes, so I admire you greatly.
I'm going to keep at it though, I promise. See you tomorrow!

It doesn't seem like you have a problem painting anything, you're fantastic. I really appreciate you painting live for us, can't wait.

Great work on your landscape, Barb. Landscapes (to me) come with their own set of problems.

By the way...I have awarded you the Brillante Weblog award - you can read the info on my blog. You can pass it on or not, your choice. I figured this was just a nice way to let you know I appreciate your work.

Hi Dean, Thank you for the award, nice to be appreciated. I've been enjoying doing landscapes, maybe that will be my "thing". Hope I have a "thing", lol.
