This is a park in Dallas, Texas. Meant to be loose and painterly. Also "trying" to follow limited value and varying the temperature. But it is hard… and I need to make it a second nature. (sorry for the reflection). All feedback are welcome.

I wonder if you're not trying too hard as your work before you started concentrating on your rules was wonderful. I think you already have an intuitive sense about what a painting needs and shouldn't worry so much about whether or not you're following the rules.

That said, this painting is much better than the one of the canyon. Your background trees are great and so are the shadows of the foreground. The light is concentrated in the middle of the painting where your COI is and draws the eye there. I think there could be a bit more contrast in places in that area but that's a personal opinion.

You're a wonderful artist and your own style holds you in very good stead. All of recreating a 3-d plane on a 2-d surface is about light against dark and lost and found edges and no one does that any better than you. I so admire your dedication to learning to be a better painter and think we all should keep learning, but I also think you can trust your own intuition and your own style will shine through.

Thanks Jan, maybe you are right about trying too hard. But very frankly, I am still searching for that level of mastery where things just flow onto the canvas. I am still scared of a blank canvas. I guess that is a feeling that will never go away... Let's see. Smile
