By the way, thanks for the extra info leanan; still looks like Pompous Grass to me.
Your painting is looking great to me... Love the nickname. I think I saw some of that grass around here. Now I know how to call it.

Patricia... I like your renderings, "Entrance to the bush" is my favorite.

Pavel

P.S. Another try with "Pompous grass"

Blown away ..

totally by what you have all been able to do with these photos. Thrilled and humbled by the talent here.

I've heard of pampass grass but never realised that the feathers were part of it. I always had the impression of just the flaxy bushy base. I think I shall never seen these again without Pompous Grass coming to mind

All renditions of the cascade creek have caught the primeval richness, depth and mystery of the place. It *feels* like that when you are there.

The pompass grass are all fun and vibrant, and the entrance have caught the element of the unknown beyong the bridge. I love them all, but Patriciakay, I wish I could have your painting of the entrance on my study wall.

Cassidy, thank you for your compliment about the photos. I'm blushing a little here.

I think if I ever get to the dunes while the All Blacks are in training, the exercise would become one of damage control of camera shake! Apart from which, they're usually dragged out there at something like 6am in the morning.

Thank you

leanan (dropping the `si)

Thanks all for the kind comments, it was fun to do.

lkroll: Love the detail on those feathery things, they look so soft.

palms1: My favorite is your first one, it looks like an illustration for an Indiana Jones book (though I am mad at you because the theme song from the movie is now stuck in my head).

kiska: Lovely job, I would love to get this blown up and hung on my wall.

Pavel123: Love the punched up color of your first one. Shame the sky can't always be that blue.

PatriciaK: I adore your third image, the crop is great and the sky looks like a subtle aurora borealis.

Steve: Very nicely done, I keep looking at it to figure out how you did it.

Kerry

Just a thank you to all who were nice enough to say they like my rendition of the stream in the forest, (or bush ).

It is a combination of Gertrudis Pro and Lucis with a bit of color enrichment thrown in.

Steve
