Great painting Anita! It’s great with the way you use the muted colors to create an image of a gray misty day and the last bits of color still defiantly contrasting against the sky and shadowy images of the tree line.
Thanks! I remember painting the sky… it just sort of “happened”. The best thing I did was leave it alone : )
Thank you so much!
What a captivating painting Anita, you feel almost there. I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but it has such a Turner’esque quality to it.. Lovely
Yes, thank you. Turner is one of my favorites. I had also been looking at Gustave Courbet a lot before doing this painting. The vertical “shafts of rain” in the painting are thanks to him ; )
Stunning! Love your colouring technique ❤
Thanks very much. It’s multiple layers of transparent or semi-transparent glazes. Also, scumbling opaque colors sometimes, too. It all somehow came together in the end : )
