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.
Superb piece!! Such a talent!!
This is so amazing! Very interesting composition. You are great artist!
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.
Once again: so beautiful, it blew me away.
Great one. The mist and the pines look realistic. The highlights also show the presence of light/sun...so good work
