Here is my version of the flowers in the meadow.  That was fun to do Nolan, great techniques.   I may have done it a bit to smooth, also my back left dark green mountain is it to dark or to flat.   What do you think.

Nolan what brand oil do you use for the cadmium yellow and the ultra marine, my yellow is not has bright has yours and my ultra marine turns to purplish with white.

Danielle,

Very pretty.  Lovely colors.

You are probably right that the dark mountain is too dark as mountains are usually supposed to get lighter as they recede.

Would have liked those two  birds either over the sky or the mountain - they aren't as noticeable split between land and sky.

Did you use the knife to paint the flowers?

 :thankyou: Mea, I did use a knife for the flowers, the only time I used the paint brush was for the birds and my signature.   You are right about the birds, they would have. Shown better in the sky but I though I would putthem lower.   TY

Great job Danielle :clap: :clap: :clap:

What you want to do next time is fade the dark foreground away a bit slower O0

The brand of paint I use is Marie's

Judy,

Lovely flowers in the meadow.

You had better luck on this than I did.  Just can't get the knack of knife painting.
mmm... one of the mountains in the back needs to be a bit lighter.  The one that now looks a bit lighter is actually in front of the darker one.  Or maybe it just be the way the photograph came out.

Regardless, everything looks well done.

it's beautiful Judy, I love the movement you have in the sky :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
I would add more flowers in the foreground though and make their stems go out the painting O0

Another fun and messy palette knife painting! I’m sure going to miss these when I do the final palette knife painting online. Always open to suggestions!! 
Cheers,
Sharon
