    Forest autumn lane

    This forest is right beside the pastry where we keep our horses. I made this picture last autumn and tried to paint it with oilpaint and tried very hard to not go into details...as I usually do...
    Feel free to comment on that because I like to learn to paint so that it does not look like a picture.

    This is the painting





    here are the two details of the painting...






    And this is the original picture....

    Very nice Linda, I happen to like the detail that you put into your paintings although I suppose the drawback to that is that people would tend to look at them, thinking it might be a photograph, without a thought as to the many hrs that you have put into them.
    Regards Geoff

    VanityX - fantastic spot, and you have done a great rendering of it... excellent work! I would love to walk down that lane...I can just smell the damp wet woods and see the bright sunlight in the distance...

    A beautiful painting Vanity...:-)
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Vanity

    I never tire of Fall scenes. It is my only season. This one is unbelievable. I could not in any way pretend to comment on your work or provide guidance on your desire to be more abstract(?). I can say one thing. I wish I had your problem.

    I have often said if I wanted such realism, I would take a picture of it. I do not say that of your works because, I think they are painted in passion not obsession.

    GXH in my much appreciated comments to my questions regarding the painting Totem, and his unique style. You might like to read his comments. It appears he may have made the transition you seek. I particularly found interesting the influence of artists in the genre that influenced his style.

    Terrific work. I really appreciate the details - it helps to see how wonderfully this is constructed.
