everybody

ALL your paintings inspire me!

and, with some luck, this next 2 weeks will see me catching up with my  :painting:

What was interesting was opening the 3 paintings that are on one page and being able to see all 3 at the same time.  seeing each as a unique interpretation , each beautiful in it's own right. 

The whole bunch of you that have posted are a hard act to follow!!!

 :thankyou:

Gail! For someone who don't like snow, you produce a very cool picture! Amazing. The shadows and detail really set this one off. Dennis is teaching you too well!  ;D
Will you be framing this? Send us a pic if you do.  O0

Last lesson I was at the cabin deep in the woods, broadband did not work so I missed the class. Now I have finally completed. Here I tried hot pressed paper. It will not bee my first choice for similar images. Like better the rougher surface of cold-pressed. I tried to bee a wise one and used wax on the trunk of the fir tree. Took on too much and had to remove some with a knife. Destroyed the paper and the paint ran out when I repainted the trunk.
If it`s true that one learns from their mistakes, I have learned very much. But it was fun and I think I will give it another try.

Nice painting Harald! The variations of this are great and I like your brighter sunnier day rendition.
Well done  :clap: :clap:

Why is it that always after I photograph something, it's then that I see trouble!   8)  I already see that the lower branch on the big tree needs fixing but there are a lot of other issues too where comments are welcome and appreciated.   :)
