Actually, I am seeing it after taking a break and don't like it much... Looks like a bunch of cut-outs and overworked... I forgot to do the painterly approach... But please do provide your feedback... Thanks

I'm finding the rocks quite bright compared to the front centre tree trunk and leaves. It confuses me about the direction of the light source. But I really like the top left area, where the brightness is reflecting up into that part of the trees.
And.... for painting number 100... drum rolllllllll

Thanks Alan… Yup! This is not quite as good… but anyhow challenges are what improves us… So here we go… Now for the 100th one I need to do something good… I wonder what!

(After thought: I was thinking on how to improve in Plein Air, I think I bit off more than I can chew. So, going forward, I will paint very simple Plein Air scenes and build up to challenging scenes... Baby steps first!... )

Thanks for sharing paintings you are not totally happy with; we learn a lot from what you are doing; they are very good for the time allowed and circumstances. Do you find, like I do, that you need to look at your work the next day to really know how it turned out? I get so engrossed in painting that I have little objectivity by the end of a sketching/plein air session.

I am going to do a bit of plein air while the 'getting is good', the days in my latitude are still nice at the moment. I have a few small panels to paint, to donate to charity by end of Sept.

(teasing) We are all waiting, biting our fingernails, wondering what your #100 painting will be!!
Seriously, that is a heck of an accomplishment!

take care

Yike! It's 100 coming up. I remember #1.

This most recent one was a challenge. It seems like the focus is the distant water and trees that are brightly lit by the sun. It is tending to make the painting feel kind of flat because the foreground rocks are equally bright. I wonder if you did a wash to darken the foreground and let it gradually lighten as you go deeper into the painting. Perhaps a blue purple gray based on the blue purple you have in the distance.

I think that would make a world of difference and you would like it much better.

Faisal, I've been incredibly busy and haven't been in for a while. Wow! So hard to believe 100 is coming up - it seems as if you just started!

I'm not so fond of #99 but like Alan, I'm glad you shared it. It makes you more human, lol! (I have this vision of you in my mind as Super Painter who never paints anything that isn't perfect!)

Jan, you are too kind… Smile. I hurt my back doing yard work. I forgot to stretch and take it easy. It was my daughters birthday and was getting ready for the party. So I have been lying around mostly. I am thinking about what would be appropriate fort the 100th…. Hmmm… Another self-portrait maybe… Smile

Faisal, I was thinking maybe something grand, like your self portrait done as plein air in one of your local parks, with a cake on a picnic blanket in the foreground. With 100 candles burning. Something like that! Very Happy

LOL Alan, I surely do aspire to do something grand like that,… maybe when I hit 1000… Smile Did you guys know that Van Gogh painted over a thousand paintings and sold only 1 or 2?

I think that some artists are working in styles that are not appreciated at the time, and it is only later that someone 'significant' discovers that the work was truly exceptional. 'Too far ahead of his time', maybe.
