Hi Catherine, Hi Melanie - thanks a lot! I'm hoping the next ws will be a still life - I've never really done any...

Its light but its nice. I like the orange roof instead of red and the yellow leaves.  And I like the romance under the tree! The lake reflections are very nice and so are the mountains. Actually I like most everything about this except that it looks to light. To bad you could not get a better photo. Very nice painting!

I like your water ... and your mountains look really nice too.  Good job.

Hi Sharon, its about 28 in x 20 in. Personally I dislike small paintings - but I think that for learning it's maybe a good idea to get smaller - especially if one's painting outside. 4x 2 ft is pretty big - bet it has presence!

How large is your painting?  I did one that is 4 x 2 feet this year.

Hi Sharon, that's an interesting comment - thanks! Actually the photo is very pale - there's more color in the mountains and the darks are pretty dark! It's got knife work in the sky - but it's big - so I guess hard to get a realistic photo of it. I found the groups of trees to be the most problematic - I guess I should have let it dry and done them with a house painter's brush. Cheers. Jon

Love the brush movement and the water!  I like the people in the distance, looks realistic.  There is a lot to look at in this painting, and I like the road and beach area that leads your eye to the boat shed.  I like it!  I would like to see more darks, though.  :)
