I would like to try some glazing to deepen the water but need to understand the process. Do I glaze the depth in before or after the reflections are accurate? How dry does the painting have to be before I glaze? Then what?

Thank you for the clearer picture! It truely is looking like a masterpiece! Smile

I would do the glazing first to deepen the water. The reflections on the water are on the surface of the water and the way I work in layers and I've read is to think of the water from bottom to surface working from bottom to surface of the water. Also the colors in the reflections on the surface will probably contain some lighter values then the underlying water with more opaque colors (thick over thin rule).

I would let the painting to dry enough so if you make a mistake you can fix it by wiping the new paint off.

Thanks for the advise. I will work in this. Its frustrating to work full time when all you want to do is stay at home and paint. But I read a lot of the Northlight books and love them.

You've done a terrific job on the whole painting. You can feel the thin, icy glaze on the water. I still just want to walk right into the picture. Judy

I love the icy feeling you've given the water too, and the dry twigs you've added in to the foreground. Your picture has so much depth. Nice work. Smile

Dale, I too still get that feeling of being able to take a stroll into your painting! It's so beautiful! Smile

Thanks all. Home from work sick today. Blah.

I have a bit more work to do on the foreground twigs and the front water area. There is a strip of frozen ice near the back edge of the water that really needs to be cooled. The I think this will go to bed.

But if anyone wants to critique, I would be happy to listen. I am not sure I like the front tree. It looks awkward.

I think the front tree looks good and adds even more depth to the painting. I viewed the icy water in the back as being a less frozen where the slushy water is still flowing because of the curve in the creek. I won't touch either of these.

Thanks Judy. I am excited about this painting. I love it when my kids and husband come in to the studio and voice their approval. Usually they are very ctitical of fault they see - all in a positive way (chuckle)

Appreciate their comments.I'm sure they are made out of love and pride.

My husband was always my best critic. When I would stare and stare at a finished painting because there was something nagging me about it, but I couldn't put my finger on it, I would ask him if he saw anything wrong, and he would immediately point out the problem which had eluded me.

It's been 10 years since he passed, and I still miss him and his great ability to constructively critique my painting. His favorite line was to introduce me and proudly tell people that I paint....walls, windows and beautiful paintings. It was always good for a laugh.

Judy
