    3 mile creek

    My road to progress seems a bit slow, but I'm still trying to get there. Here's my latest.

    ah barnburner, you have done a good piccie. There is something so inviting and pleasant here. Something about the peacefulness of it and the colors draw you right in. Beautiful work. The sky is a bit right out of the Cerulean blue tube but the other colors are very interesting and working really cool together. This shows a very cool style emerging. The chalk or crayon trees
    are wonderful!

    You've definately stepped it up a notch here. I especially like the color blending at the lower left.

    Nice one. I would call it 'Big Sky Over Three Mile Creek'.

    I think it's great.

    Would be cool to really do a nice job on the trees. Compositionally you could say all the stuff you're saying here if you make the trees really big creating a diagonal leading the eye to the creek. That way you would still be showing a lot of sky.

    Anyway, you're doing great. Don't be bashful. Show is a little more Field and Stream.

    If you want, you could even look at a nice photo of something like what you're doing. Reference helps to know what it all looks like.

    Good start. I like the direct paint colors.

    Thanks D Akey.

    Interesting idea of about putting the trees on a diagonal. Maybe some smaller trees in the background, with the larger trees forming the diagonal down to the water?

    I look at some reference pics sometimes to get ideas on how things should look. Trouble is - what I see, and what I can do, are not always the same thing.
