L Skylar Brown,
To imagine a place such as this is to take a fancyful flight where
the body and soul could once again breath and renew. The varied
green palette illuminates the lush foliage and setting of this little
tropical paradise, tucked away behind the overgrowth for only true
adventurers to discover. The artistry is quite impressive and so well
painted! :)

Great tropical feel to this one Skylar, lush green palette. Water looks great.

Another fine one, Skylar! Looks like you´re daydreaming about somewhere in Central America. :cool:

Wow, simply beautiful. A Vietnamese restuarant in VA about 30 miles from my house display a lot of paintings of Vietnam very similar to this one. These artists are quite starving here in the USA, hard to sell now.:( The owner is a woman who came here when she was little would negotiate the sales just to help them out.

I always like water and huts scenery, this one is really remarkable well done my friend.:D

You're really giving us a lesson in painting "light" here. The limited pallet shows off your use of lighter greens against the dark shadows to indicate sunlight filtering in. Thanks! Al

Thanks for all the great comments. I am very partial to greens (Duh) and wanted to do almost a monochrome image. It was a challenge just varying the shades, and keeping them in the same family. The touch of blue in the water is a contrast which reenforces all the greens.
