Thank you for the great class Nolan.

I did not finish watching the painting process due me being so  :sleep: sorry - been a hectic day.

Can't wait for the replay and put my clouds, mountain and tree painting together.  ;)

I really enjoyed the class too .... it inspired me to have a go at a landscape in watersoluble oils.  It's the first time I've used them so they took a bit of getting used to, I still managed to get my background trees to look like lollipops though  :D

I like that Anita  :clap: You can always go back and adjust the shapes of the trees, so not a problem. I do suggest a greener colour wash over the back trees so they stand out a bit more from the mountains. I really love your infused light effect on the front tree  :yippee: Then you can also darken the shadow on the ground for the front tree, especially against the tree. It will help to ground it O0

 :congrats:  Anita, that is a beautiful painting!    :clap: :clap: :clap:

I love the impressionistic style.  Beautiful colors.

Will you post a new pic if you do some changes?  I'd love to see it and it would help us all to learn.   :)

Anita, I too love your impressionistic style of painting. It's great to hear you have started using the water mixable oils.
Like Lillian, I look forward to see if you apply Nolan's recommendations.

Hi all

Thanks for all your lovely comments.

I was surprised today how easy it was to try and fix things a bit, I'm definately warming to these oils  .... I fear another visit to the art shop is looming  :help:


Close up the painting looks a bit blugh ... but from hanging distance it actually looks quite sweet so I am pleased with it.

Great job....it's a very 'comfortable' and calming painting ..... I'd be proud to have it hanging. It's really lovely. Congrats.

I like the more impressionistic style you have used here, it has a free feel to it O0
