Chapel in the Pines by molecularart Chapel in the Pines by molecularart
Acrylic 20"x30".  I reworked this painting to highlight the chapel more and adding foreground pines to further bring the focus on the chapel.  I think this version is better than the earlier submission and hope you like it.  Thanks in advance for any and all comments.

How did you do the trees on the side?

I used a large older flat brush that the bristles have spread out.  I dabbed paint only on the very end of the bristles and painted the sunlit needles first in each bunch using naples yellow, then painted the branches.  After that I painted increasing dark layers of needles (mixture of cyan blue and crimson red, with increasing amounts of blue) letting each layer dry before putting the next one on.  I wanted to get a silhouette effect with the needles on the far side being hit my the sun rays coming from over the hills on the right side.

No.  I hardly know what I am doing myself.  It takes me a lot of trial and error, so I am afraid I don't have much to offer others.

Great one. The mist and the pines look realistic. The highlights also show the presence of light/sun...so good work :) (Smile)
