painting challenge ; Morning Walk (P Salmons)

Attempt at painting challenge, trying to work loosely and capture the colours. I would have expected the grasses to be more 'bleached' but the photo showed quite strong colours (on my machine!).

Very nice work Paula.  You really managed the foreground color well.  Your atmospheric perspective is excellent.   Stu

Smiles coming your way : ))

A very nice painting! I love the way you lead us slowly into the picture at the bottom, but then it goes too fast up to the fence line. Maybe placing the figure on the other side of the path would fix this.

Like you shadows, they bring out the lovely morning light :)

Nice Job, strong light and dark contrast

Gosh, thanks for your kind comments.  As ever, I was not very happy with the painting and doubtful whether to post it or not. So it's really nice to have positive feedback!

I like the strong shadows and the feeling of distance.  Nicely done!

I like the way you created distance.  Putting the small bush in on the other side of the fence and then blurred ones on the other side works really well.  I never could figure out how to do this and still keep distance so didn't paint any bushes.  Thanks for showing me how to do it!  Your composition draws my eye around the scene very well. All these talented artists like yourself are sure inspiring and teaching me!

Really nice painting. I like the shadow areas on your pathway in particular. Well done!
