Re: Something else...

Interesting work, but I am afraid the reflexion of the right fur-tree not in the correct direction. The angle of sight is equal to a angle of incidence.

Thanks OlBaldy and Vitali, it's the first try of actually painting without a photo source, you are right, Vitali, the reflection looks a bit off...

Re: Something else...

I like the soft trees, Amica. The pond is reflecting blue sky, but the sky is white?

Re: Something else...

Thank you, Swampy..I had a gradient as background and that is shining through...abviously forgot to tone it down...not so happy with the reflection anyway...

Thank you, Palms, I wanted to try something different and since I can't really paint I wanted to experience how it would work in PS...Looking at it..it's needing practice as well..anyhow I had fun and that's most important, isn't it? :-)

Re: Something else...

The only thing that I can say Amica is that I to shudder at the thought and have to say I really think that you did a great job. My dad and his brother could draw and paint like crazy but they were old fashioned steam engine engineers hauling Iron Ore on the Mesabe Range. I'll leave the critique to those who know more than I do. One of these days I am going to put up a photo that I did and a watercolor painting that my brother-in-law (A painter) did of the same scene. He uses photographs for his source material, but does the painting the old fashioned way. He went to Cranbrook, etc. Masters degree, has taught, the whole ball o'wax.
