Maple Avenue Lake 2

It seems that the easiest way to learn about color and tonal values is to stay with the same scene.  Couldn't resist doing this again.  Thanks to Trudy, using her suggestion about changing the atmosphere.  Lots of fun. Happy Painting everyone.

  4. Oh my word!!! The change of colours has created a much more dramatic and foreboding scene. What a great lesson this is. Wonderful painting.

  5. Hi Joan.
    You have done a cracking job here by changing the Atmosphere. I love it when an Artist pushes the colour, and does her own thing. Well done my friend, have a nice weekend the two of you. All the best. Vic.

  9. This is gorgeous Joan. I love the distant storm brewing atmosphere over the quiet lake--your range of umbras really set the mood and the time of year--late Fall. Lovely.
