Hi Julie, love the grayed mutted blues and browns in this one. The brushwork seems windswept and I like your treatment of the distant trees. Brian
Thanks Brian, I brought it home to ponder it, as I always do, and I think I could hit it up with a few more lighter lights in the foreground. In a dull light, it looses it's lighter values. What do you think?
Julie, maybe add a few darker notes to the foreground which of course will make the lights lighter. If that doesn't quite do it, lighten a few of the lights as you say. I see you already have a few darks in the lower right hand corner, and they liven up whats around them. Brian
i like the subtle tonal changes but i agree with Brian a few darks would help
Hi Julie you've got the best advice anyone could get so I'll just tell you i enjoyed looking at this one. Its got wonderful character to it and vitality. :}
Thanks all. i will go at it .
