Thank you Mary, Wenda and Susan!
I just love the LIGHT!
Love this one Karen. Who wouldn't want to live there? You always achieve such good color and softness.
Karen this is really nice! i think they should do a change over! your version is better than the real thing :)
Thanks for the original picture and your added commentary below Karen - very helpful. Your colors are great.
Thanks Wanda - not that big of brushes! :) To block in the basic shapes and values I used a flat brush about 1/2" wide. On this size canvas - 9" x 12" I used smaller brushes as well, down to tiny rounds and a liner for points of color.
I think the key is to use larger brushes whenever you are painting a larger area, and to stick with the larger brushes as long as you can.
Thanks you Marion, Ian and Sarah! You should give it a try Ian!
Love the tree and house colours. What a wonderful series.
Its amazing Karen how you Grab the tree, tone down prominent shapes and produce a bright colourful painting. I like the series so far. Makes me think about having a go atpainting our own 90yer old bungalow we have here in Auckland.
Love your house series Karen. I really like how you changed the detail of the front area leading up to the house - it actually looks a lot nicer than the real life version.
When you say using a bigger brushes...what size are you using.
On Sunday I attended a demo on acrylic painting with big brushes by Mac Grieve. He used a 2" brush to do about 90% of an impressionistic landscape painting and I was blown away. So will be trying my hand at this as soon as I finish my 4 works in progress that I have sitting here right now.
