Liquitex Professional Acrylic on 5"x5" stretched and primed canvas + 45 minutes + Liquitex Slow Dri Paint Extender + Size 10 Filbert Synthetic + Size 8 Round Synthetic + Size 4 Round Synthetic + Size 0 Round Synthetic Brushes + Music

Just more stuff to put in the window. I sold the other small canvas I did - so I thought it was due to do another.

Original for sale, $20 + Shipping.

Colors look better in person, as usual.

Ah Gracie, as always I'm in love with your colours :heart: It's great how you indicated so much with those rough strokes. And I love the overall atmosphere. I'm a bit unsure actually, if I wouldn't like a slightly stronger contrast on the focus point, but then again I love the muted feel.
Two things I want to mention though, if I may: The trees look very alike, and the distance between them is almost the same, too, so it feels as if you have three parallel strokes. And the waterfall could be broken up a little as well, falling onto rocks and dividing up itself, just subtle additions :hug:

Otherwise, lovely :aww:

Of course, as always you are right! Unfortunately this little one is already sold... but I'll keep in mind for future waterfalls to make them more broken up!

Miss talking to you! :glomp:

Me too, it reduces the clutter and means we eat well. :giggle:

Tell me when it's good so I can make a well-timed appearance :D

Don't be ashamed! I don't want your guilt, I want your doodles. Send em when you got them. You've contributed much to this group and you can take summer vacations if you wish. :lol:

Oh, very pretty. But somewhat different then previous ones...It's very peaceful and less vibrant than the others. I kind of like it, makes me want to sleep. ^_^

I mixed my palette more with this one so there are more neutrals than the others. It's the same tube colors, just more time spent mixing than putting it down. :lol:

Ah, but mixing is so peaceful...I like watching the colors mix.. (although, sometimes after working on a piece for like 5 days, I would rather the paint mixed itself...) Painting is therapeutic. :D

I like it too. And the more I do the better I get, which is why I've been doing so much traditional art lately. :D
