Greens always a adventure to capture. Its been said that the quest of a landscape artist is to capture the true color of green. Add distance and create depth by how you treat that color. If you can do that you have created a painting that looks more 3'd or the illusion of it. I'm a long way from that however, I'm sure loving the adventure like with this painting.

This is the result of the finished demo, Would like to add maybe a few highlights to the sunset, however this seems powerful enough. I went a little much on the colors , if the dry grass looked warm went all the way , Or if they looks cool went to a purplish. Cool shadow went with a blue color,. closer greens more intense, further away dull green. As you can see on the left side all the way to a bluish purple for the more distant greens. Was a lot of fun mentioned to may times when they asked a question about a certain part of the painting. Was your eye drawn there if so should it? if not you need to change something about that spot .For instance change the contrast , or gray the color that caught your eye or remove the highlight that's there. If you wanted your eye there then just leave it. However keep looking away from your painting then back and reference what catches your eye and should it ?? Yes, leave it, no change it. Always having fun with Art.


Pallet of Roses art League Demo wanted to give a glimpse of my painting coming together enjoy.

She said it would be a great gift for someone on mothers day thus the name. I hope everyone has a great week and a awesome mothers day this year. Remember they will not be with us forever.
