What a great painting Jay! love your shadow work along the banks of the water. The depth you've got is great too. Good going!

Beautiful palette and I really like the misty background.

I like the depth and complexity,  very dynamic!

This is lovely Jay!  I really like your colors, your ground blending, the great distance perspective and you tree textures too!

Thanks Karen, I am really learning a lot from your videos, for example how to do foliage.

I love it Jay! Nice job with the misty background. Love the loose brushwork on the foliage too! The creek has movement, I think I hear it babbling! :)

Thanks for the nice comments. I used burnt sienna and some crimson for the reddish needles under the trees.
