Made in 4 hours with acrylics. Reference used.



Rated 4 / 5 stars


I really like the use of light in this one. Im also a sucker for impressionist paintings. My favorite part of this painting is the distant field, that seems to be lit up with warm light.
Maybe try to define slight details with the things closest to us, so we can get a feel for what's in the distance and in the background.
overall great.

You clearly have some well versed talent and composure. The variation of colours gives the environment that lush and light which it needs. You've also captured the sense of the image rather well.

However you've got some odd blackness on some of the foreground weeds and background trees, aswell as some issues with getting light to shine on the left and right edges. Try to get a perfect shot before submitting because this would've look very pleasing.

Yeah, I noticed the black spot in the corner, but It would not come off when I painted this for some reason. I might upload a better version of this soon...

Some complaints

I like the scene you tried to create but you have serious problems with the accuracy of the drawings and the color range is poorly balanced.

For example if you see the tree that is on the left you can notice a large irregularity in shape and color is not exactly the best. It would have been better if you had a combination of black and green which would give a sense of depth in the image.

So I recommend that before you paint any picture you draw it on paper first, to choose where to stay every shadow, every element, and each color experience and see that this is before you do the final work.

But you have talent alone you need to work on precision, practice much and experiment more with the scenes until you find your own way to combine things.

I wish you luck and continuous improvement.

I always sketch out my painting before painting it. My camera didn't capture the right color of that tree.
