Hello dear friends .
I have been working on this piece for around 12 days , and I paused some times and worked on other stuff that I previously posted here , and the reason for that is beacuse working on it was very tiering. I think it still needs some finishing touches specially in the forground trunks.. I used the oil brush in the base colours, finishing with the 3 kinds of pallete knifes and I used the glitter gun with the pallete knife in alot of places (specially the vigitations on the rocks and some places in the background) and some touches with chulk and pencils as least as possible .. I had to zoom to 10x the size of the canvas to be able to do the details (which I like about AatRage very much) ... the original resloution was 4000 x 3000 but I had to resize it to be able to post it here .. as always I didn't use any other programs and on 1 layer . the refrence was a small photo on the internet .
I hope you like it and waiting your comments .

Nabil, this is absolutely breathtaking! The area I live in has many forests and streams that look similar at this time of year. I am astounded at the fact that you did this all on one layer. You certainly have an eye for detail. I especially like the way you did the moss covered rocks. Beautiful.

For me this painting is the best that I ever see from you, I don't think that you have to change anything in it, it's a wonderful realistic painting;
in the distance it have to be more flue isn't it ?
I like secialy the reflection on the water and all the details, excelent work.
Thank you to share with us this painting.:)

I think it would take me another 12 days to find all the positive and enthusiastic adjectives in English this real masterpiece would deserve, dear Nabil! It was beyond my imagination to believe You can get this with ArtRage or any other actual painting means!!

My dear great artists Caesar and DAkey .
Thank you very much for appreciating my work , and thanks for you very nice comments .
I think in time I will be able to do better with ArtRage since I have been only using it for 45 days now .

Dear Caesar & DAkey I attached two photos from my old oil paintings I painted them 20 years ago and I'm keeping them in my house , those two pieces are not from the best I did, all the others were sold long ago. Sorry the photos don't show the real colours due to light refelctions on the canvas .. I hope you like them .

The realism and detail in that painting is amazing Nabil!
i feel like I could step into that picture at any moment.... care to give online lessons? ;)

What I like about your paintings is that it shows what is possible with this program and give us a goal to shoot for...The only problem is that if we can't do it we can't blame the program anymore.....:)

Caesar
10-23-2008, 06:58 AM
Dear Nabil, it was easy to guess You wrere a professional painter (specific degree or not). These two oil artworks are amazing! The first one could well be a French XVIII century painting! I'm in awe in front of Your art and skill!

Acehole

Dear Nabil Saleh,
I just had to comment on your framed snow scene painting . . .
it is absolutely breathtaking!!! I love snow scenes, and your
painting presents a majestic interpretation of one of natures
wonders. A quiet, reflective walk in that forest would sooth
the soul. Beautiful! :)

Nabil,
I really can't believe this piece you have created. This could be passed off as a photograph. This is amazing. I don't even like my stuff anymore. :(
I want to someday be able to demonstrate this skill level. Thank you for sharing.

Very nice and perfect the left part... but the right area its at a lower quality beside the rest of the painting... even trees branchs do some strange overlapings or shadows and also the water reflection of that area dont match the forest...

drzeller
02-11-2009, 02:55 AM
This is fantastic work!

Would you be willing to post any not-reduced detail sections from the painting?

I'd love to see the middle, rocky section in detail. I posted a snippet to show the area I am thinking of.

Again, wonderful.

David

PS - After snipping that picture section from the original and seeing it in the posting preview, I realized it makes a pretty good picture on it's own. I am always pleased/surprised/amazed when I find another piece of work that stands on its own from within a larger piece.

Nothing short of breathtaking.

The level of detail makes my head hurt, but the tranquility and shear beauty of the scene numbs the pain.. great work.
