Hi Julie, I really like the way you did all the branches and twigs with broken line instead of having them all be straight and hard-edged. I also love the sky colors...has the "feel" of tree and new growth...and a joyous dance of twigs and leaves, lovely. Brian
also...the more I look at it, the more I love the composition and balance.....acrylic...bit of a surprise! Brian
Hey Brian, Thanks, it has the feel of what I was trying to capture, but because it is larger than life, it looks best from about 35feet away. The sky that morning was dark and wintery, but the sun just peeked through and lit those buds up like a light bulb. It was too big to do in oils, don't own that much paint. It was fun again to do a big one in acrylic, mix it up a bit.
The leaves look like acrylic butter+ the sky, the limbs & the twigsgive off a realness we can all aspire to!..Geat!.......van
