5"x15", I think, in oil

This is a second attempt. I'm so thankful to Richard for introducing me to Tibor Nagy. It's a style I'd really like to emulate. Unfortunately, I wasn't very successful.

Actually Natasha, I like this because of the quality of light with your technique, and the negative space on the right makes it more interesting, too. It's almost abstract. I'll have to check into Tibor Nagy!

What's with all you over achievers and more than one entry!? It's the last day and I've only just uploaded my one and only, not really finished painting. Humph!

In my mind, a lovely balance done with subtlety.

Denise, thanks for the critique.  I agree with everything you said.  You know, I had this great underpainting going and then I was stuck, I couldn't figure out where to go next and I always have a hard time getting my midtones pushed the way I want.  Well, I decided I get it posted no matter how frustrated I was with it.  Thanks again!

Natasha, I liked your previous attempt with the dramatic sunset and snowy atmospheric results and colors but I prefer how you have done the tree here. It's more realistic and it also has an emotional feel of a cold winter day. Good work with the Nagy affect in both, there is a good attempt towards thick and thin and I like the way there are areas of under painting and canvas still showing. Your colors are subtle and still harmonic,although I would like to see them pushed a bit more in the foreground but maybe that's just where I'm coming from at the moment.
