View Through the Trees

View Through the Trees, 6 x 8

I wasn't too happy with this one as I started...not enough sleep and not enough time to paint.  I wound up liking it for the composition, though I think some values could be more accurate. Not much time to write I need to make up sleep from last night!

Hi Julie,

This is gorgeous! What a strange exercise painting is when you think about it. There you are all alone creating beauty, and instead of saying, "Aren't I amazing?" you say
"I'm not happy with this." Meanwhile very few people in the whole world can paint as well as you do. Love the painting.

You look like you are having fun with trees! Your brush strokes make it look like the wind is blowing from the right. Was that your intention or just an accident?

Have a fun day.

I agree with Barbara...this is great! I love the shadows on this one. Hope you are catching up on your sleep.

You know what I love? Even when there is not enough time, you still paint. Your work is growing and you learn something every time. You are amazing.

Love the thick paint and seeing the brush marks. I wish sleep deprivation worked this well for my work!!
