Verdant Stream

I found the creek's harmony of green and blues to be very alluring.


  1. Very nicely balanced sir! Your brushwork in the extreme background and foreground feels fiddly, but the rest is super confident. Well said.

  2. Thank you for the thoughtful critique. I do need to render out the foreground to show that it consists of rocks.

  3. I guess you could solve it by putting more information, but my thinking was that it work better treated more simply. As is, the variation just distracts and slows the eye's movement toward the focal point.

    Crits aside, I think your paintings from life continue to improve and become more succinct. Keep pooping 'em out. <3

  4. Ah I see Dan, so perhaps it would have been better to simply suggest the foreground and subordinate it.

    Thanks for the encouraging words!
