    Ms Coops, these colors are so very rich. I think that most painters would have been content with a narrower bandwidth of color than you have chosen.

    I myself might have stopped before going as far as you have, and I consider myself a colorist. I think perhaps one of the reasons is because I customarily would mix my paint on the palette as opposed to such interesting broken and in-between colors happening by the brushwork. And you've not overworked the blending where it would become over-mixed and neutralized (dead in spots). The colors remain high key and rich. And that spells optical activity on the canvas that's not out of control or brash, but like smooth ripples in a stream.

    It also allows for much to experience through a picture not employing a lot of details. I can see what you're getting at -- there's sufficient detail for that, but the color then becomes the star of the show. Feels like an interpretation, as could be experienced through the realm of dance. And as such it has a special stylized life within it, something that can only really be seen that way.

    And so it's all fresh to me. And very uplifting. Brava!!!!

    Just enough detail to make this a rich and interesting painting...and I agree with you...the loaded knife is great !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    I love when you can see the stroke of the brush. Very nice flow and composition. Reminds me of the foothills of the Olympic Mountains.

    I like this landscape very much. It's simple, but very atmospheric. A bit threatening, but not idyllic at all. This was intended, I think
