View Full Version : Autumn Wilderness

12-09-2015, 06:04 PM
It's been a while since I last logged in, sorry about that but I tend to go in spurts with this stuff. One week I'm painting with acrylics, the next I'm watercolor sketching, the next I'm pen drawing, and so on until I get the digital bug buzzing in my ear again. I just finished this one tonight.


I did this on my Surface Pro 3, only 1600 X 1200 all using the oil brush, no fancy tricks. I took the reference photo while exploring in the High Uinta Mountain Wilderness in northern Utah a couple years ago.

a great study of the trees and forest, the structure and scale of the trees are very accurate and the colors are beautiful :cool::cool::):)

Very nice stuff. Love the colors. The light values and controlled saturation throughout sort of lifts me into a lightness, or a heightened awareness of the light. Those yellow trees are great for pictures, aren't they?

A very pleasant picture. Were it a piece of music, it would be where something like the woodwind section is playing the melody.

Very nice. It's interesting that a painting of plain forest can still look interesting and fresh, even though you'e not the first one to attack this subject.
