This is another commission painting. Another rain forest based on my first one but with different elements.  It’s rather big: 2 meters by 1,60 meters. I started with acrylics, switched to oil like the customer wished.
I don’t like the sky somehow, looks patchy. Love to get some ideas from you to make it better.
I like the bright colours of the naive painting style. Birds and animals are yet to be finished.

Loving it so far :heeha:
Personally I would leave the patchy sky holes as that is what I see if I look up through the trees:

Thank you Emma Lee! The oils make the colours so bright!
Thank you Dennis!  :D
Wow, thanks for your support Nolan,  :smitten: the Sky in your photo almost has the same colour! In fact I think I used „sky blue“ as colour for the sky.
Thank you for your comment, Val!
