This is just wonderful!!! The palette, artistry, texture, beautiful scene,
everything is so well painted. May I inquire about the lovely grain effect?
Is it a result of the canvas, skilled use of certain Art Rage paint tools or
possibly a combination of both? The effect is striking! Well done! :)

Lovely job Scott, it has a lovely grain effect, must be the crayon.
The stonework is really good.

You did your part just great! I really like the way you applied the paint.

Looks like the photographer used a wide angle lens because that perspective is pretty extreme. The overall perspective is a little odd to me because the left side of the opening seems to be receding and the inner side edge seems to come more forward of it.

That kind of stuff happens all the time to painters, and sometimes tricks have to be applied to more or less force the planes to behave properly. I think it may be a combination of the detail on that inside edge, but also because the hue is so warm it pulls it forward. Wouldn't know what would work without painting on it.

At any rate, your approach to the painting is really super. I love the rough feel to the surfaces. Makes it really interesting to look at.

Good one, Scott. :)

Great painting Scott. Looks nealy photorealisitic. Its style is a bit different to your last paintings.

Your usual==superb!

I'm impressed with the dimensionality of this work which is wonderfully interwoven with the texture of the hard surfaces and the almost impressionistic interpretation of the foliage. You continue to impress and amaze us. :)
I must admit though that I'm mystified about that white spot. :confused:

Thanks so very much sabena, Caesar, barnburner, ENCHANTER, Levent, weembaman, Mairzie, Peter, sandyg, D Akey, Belvrog, Rob, Robert, and Lee. Itīs always great to hear your comments and ideas!

Mairzie, the texture is simply from the crayon on the blackboard canvas.
