D Akey suggested a few things. I gave it a go on some of them and revised this painting.

I moved the new version up and entered the original again.

Quite a good bit of information well thought through, EB.

The depth in the mountains and all about is clear and sharp. Well done on that. Good display of understanding. Brilliant actually.

My personal recommendation would be that when doing reflections in water, it's sometimes a good thing as far as picture making, to not make it quite so mirror like lest it take on an inkblot quality of evenness folded over. Just for variety you can do things like disturb the water a little for interest and variety, and pick parts to let reflect more than others.

Blurring it vertically a little (rather than squashing it) and come laterally more or less across the surface as if a breeze or current were passing through can keep it interesting.

But this is really fine work. Well done on the atmospheric perspective. The mountains recede nicely. You're getting good, EB! Remember a couple years ago. Tremendous breakthroughs.

EB... really nice work you have really gotten the mountains and the subtle colors down. I really like the subtle greens in the hills to the left of the main peak.. overall a remarkable work.;);):):):)

Beautiful work EB, I love to get input from D Akey, good or bad he is always a great help to improve your talents:):):):):)

EB... great rework on #2... as a much more realistic look with the subtle ripples in the water and the diminished tones in the reflections.... good job

10-20-2011, 11:27 AM
Thank you pat1940
I agree, I have much respect for D Akey

10-20-2011, 12:48 PM
Your landscapes are very relaxing and enjoyable :)

10-20-2011, 05:11 PM
Personally, I like the one on the bottom best. Your new version adds more distance but in doing so, it becomes just another landscape painting. The earlier one reminds me of the massive mountains in Yosemite Natl Park in California and takes your breath away.
I'm thinking the one on top is new and the one on the bottom is old.

Fantastic job. These are really nice.

Hi. EB. Yep agree with Carlcarth the only change I would have done was

1. Ripple the water to take the inkblot image away. 2. Stick a little

VW. Dormaville were those four rocks are but a 1/3 size of your shack

But show no people. 3 might take out the big tree to open up the vista

To get a more splendid view of the mountains , But the VW must be

Small to great the sheer size of the mountains OK. That's my

Pennysworth :D:D:D:D:D:D:D----E/S Got to be a VW they get everywhere :eek:

eighty+ Thank You

I had a running VW bug for 12 hours. The place it didn't was out of the was way of a drunk doing 90 mph plus that caved in the back right so hard it sheared the rear tire off. He had his head down while picking up his beer and drifted well on to the right shoulder before he destroyed my bug. To the VW's credit my brother, who was driving, a friend and myself all walked away.
I sold my water cooled VW van earlier this year. I use my Subaru brat to get to places I never should have now.
