Great start. Your reflections are perfect. I can't wait to see it finished.

I agree. Wow! Fantastic depth and the muted tones are perfect. I'm looking forward to seeing your next update. I'm curious regarding the fast drying medium. What brand do you use and do you mix it with another medium? Smile

Hi. Thanks for your nice comments. This is 14" x 18" illustration board. I used Artisan fast drying medium - no other medium. I am still learning and wasn't sure about mixing mediums.

Take a look at the very top and you will see a white plastic thing. This is a holder for computer wires that I snagged to hold my brushes sometimes. But I use it to hold my canvas in place at the top so I can still paint the sky area and not have the upper easel brace get in the way.

I also used a bit of plywood along the back to hold the board out further. It wobbled without it.

My favorite saying is: You row with the oars you got. I think they call it jury rigging.

Great start! I'm looking forward to see how you develop it. I like the shadows on the snow.

Dale, thank you for sharing the medium you're using. I think it's wise to stick with the brand that is meant for your WSOs. Looks like it's working very well for you.

Those are some clever adaptations that you made to your easel. Necessity is the mother of invention.

I took the photo last year and finally now have time to paint this.

After working so hard on the art show, it really pushed me to a different level of painting. Nothing like lots of practise.

I put my back out so I haven't been working on any artwork.

I'm just curious or maybe some people would call it nosy. Laughing Do you always paint from your own photographs?

Not nosy at all. That's what we are here for - to share.

I usually paint from my own photos but the Art Show I just took part in used photos from other women's trips to Africa, etc.

Do i use photos from books and online? yes, but only bits for reference.
I want to be able to sell the painting as mine.

I understand what you're saying regarding wanting to sell the painting as yours. I usually paint from references from one photographer in particular that travels all over the world. I can't seem to get truely excited by my own photographs. Maybe some day. I think I may be weird but I find it much more interesting to paint something I haven't seen. I've been told time and again that it's better to paint what you know. Smile

Funny - I just posted under "Faavorite Oil Art books" something along this line that you might be interested in.

Here is the next stage. Some of the reflections disappeared as I wanted more depth.

The painting is fantastic. There is so much depth, I could just walk right into the painting and enter the woods in the back.

I was thinking the same thing as Judy that I feel like I could just walk rite into the painting. It's looking amazing! Smile

I worked on the background and trees a bit more and started layer the relections in the water. I really am just learning how to do the water so its trial and error on this one.
