    Serenity - By the river.

    hi there everyone.... hope all is well.

    sharing my recent painting, "Serenity - By the river". rather an experimental work for me as i was after a traditional feel, having a pastel look. as for the subject, my goal was to capture beautiful moments, nature's colors and the charm of freedom. i did consult few refs of landscapes and birds, before painting this, sketched a few that i later inco-operated with the entire work.

    painted using tablet.

    happy viewing....

    excellent! Very natural feeling and atmosphere. Wonderful how you captured the lights and shadows. Realistic but still very artistic.

    Waheed, that's another complete stunner picture.
    I love the soft feel the pastels have given this picture.

    Gorgeous stuff.

    The two diagonal lines created by the branches on the left lead the viewers eye off the canvas and out of the composition. It would be a much stronger piece if directional lines were considered. The technique and painting skill is as always... amazing... wonderful.

    Actually since I tend to naturally read an image from left to right I find the branches lead me into the picture not out of it That's the beauty of art I guess, everyone sees the same thing differently hehe.
