Fantastic. Wonderful style.

I like the re-use of that leaf shape that you used for the trees in a previous pic on the road. It was good there but it's really nice here.

LOVE and I mean LOVE that wave. Really fantastic that.

I had to wait until night time to see this as the winter sun is messing with my screen! It was worth waiting for. Really nice little painting Brett. :cool:

this is beautiful work Brett, these past couple have a different feel that your earlier works. I really like these blues. the variance between the sky blue ( very deep saturated sky ) and the slightly greenish tint of the Ocean blues.. I also love the texturing in the colors of various tones of the color... and as DAkey says the leaf forms in the foreground are sweet!... I also am impressed with the flattened space in this one , meaning that the colors and shapes are layered do not give a sense of directional lighting or atmospheric distance, this adds to the decorative quality like a very fine print... nice work :):)

Thanks everyone. I really appreciate the support.

For anyone interested in a technical note, the trees and leaves that have been mentioned are created with the inkpen. Set the taper bias to 10%, the taper length to 70% and the smoothing to 80% and the opacity to about 80% or more. Then you can use pen pressure to get different sizes of leaves/trees whatever. You can play with the settings once you see what they do. Moving the taper bias will create a "stalk/trunk" on the end of the leaf etc etc.

Cheers

Brett
