"You certainly picked a difficult scene to paint!  Just to be controversial- I like the red!!  It's the same tone as the yellow on the train-  which is what happens in the photo.  You've made it brighter but that fits…"

Linda Brookes replied to Sarah Irland's discussion Feedback Requested on Forest Path
"Hi Sarah, I love your painting, so this is not a criticism but an idea that you might want to think about, regarding shadows. You have said: One  thing to note is that the photo has overhead light and I changed this so the light was from…"

Linda Brookes replied to Corri Schmidt's discussion Bird WIP - B&W stage
"What a marvellous bird.  I think you've made a great start, and while I have no idea what colour he would be, I think if you make the patterning on his feathers as clearly shown on the photo really crisp, and  keep the background…"

"Hi Lynda Obviously the highlights are needed- one question- is this glacial water?  It reminds me of Niagara Falls- with the sun 'behind' the water going over the edge, you could see the lovely  green of the glacial water- I may…"

To paint landscapes and wildlife in acrylics
I have tried watercolours, then tried acrylics- I've only painted 3 pictures but really enjoyed doing them.

Hello  and welcome to the site Linda:  you are  a great addition.... it is nice to  meet new friendly people.... thank you for the compliments on my paintings... I like to paint   what    surrounds me...  Nfld..  joined Canada in  1949., it is  an Island and surrounded by many other Islands   [ smaller],  which were inhabited   by people... and  once Canada   took over...  the premier, moved all the  smaller island people to nfld. most were fishermen... and when they painted their boats, and had  paint left over, they painted their homes the same colors, and  the story goes... that is why the colored houses...  in the capital.. St. John's.. there is a  street  with many colored houses, and it is called Jelly Bean Row.

 The colors and styles fits right into my  Folk Art  style painting...  in some cases,  it  looks more  like  the real place....  like in the one that is titled Red Island....

Many of  the  new inhabitants of nfld. came from England and also Ireland...  I noticed   a lot of the landscape  and homes  are much like here...

thanks again for the lovely comments... there are so many different style  artists here,  that it makes it more interesting.. than everyone doing the same thing....  Jeannie.
