    An Autumn Memory (Incl. Demo link)

    While I was waiting for inspiration, trying to think of something original, I busied myself with one of the places where I grew up. This is, of course, idealized, but then again, I am an artist.

    Sandy-Alex- Thanks so much. This was supposed to be just a little landscape, but turned into a deceptively complicated piece. This is where a buddy and I used to go to catch minnows and tadpoles when we were kids.

    What a beautiful place and painting, Skylar! I just love your choice of colors - the browns, golds and yellows....it just seems to bring such richness to the whole painting.

    Excellent work. I think going back and trying to paint places from your childhood is really difficult to get accurate. Well done.

    Skylar, that was a lovely story as well. Made me think of how we used to ride our bikes down a couple of miles away to a creek to watch the tadpoles and walk in the cool water on a hot summer day. Those were the days, huh?

    I really like this autumn color palette and the composition in this painting. Beautiful one, Skylar.

    A beautiful place to grow up and a beautiful painting! Love the colors and the mood! I get the feeling the memory you painted was of a much simpler life remembered through a child's mind. A heart felt painting LSB! Well done!
