Two more paintings. I did 12 x 14 inches canvas this time instead of my usual 16x20.....i think i like the smaller ones better and the format is more rectangular like a photograph is too.

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

 :heeha: Love that little green guy! Looks as though you may have awakened him, sleepy eyes!  ;D   Love the variations in its colouring. Well done.  O0

I like the landscape, what do you think about a darker bank to give the land/water better separation?
Cheers, Val

Val............yes! Forgot that. One of the hallmarks of landscape paintings! I put one in.........subtly. Already  am messing with everything too much again. But here it is..Thanks for reminding me of that Val.
