Yet another version of this wonderfull view. Started with a palette knife, just a little bruche work and then brought out the textures with a dry brush or rag. Please click on the image for a FULL VIEW PLEASE
After 'living' with my painting 'Glow' for a bit, something was not quite right. I'm still not convinced it's fixed but it is better. I toned it down and softened it up a bit, and also brought out the texture more. It doesn't seem to'glow' as much the digital image doesn't do it justice.
I had a lot of paint left on my pallette, so I tried as quickly as I could to do a little fall landscape from my imagination. I think it worked out ok...I really want to get out and do some plein air painting, take pictures, sketch or just plain observe....I just hope my knee holds out so I can walk a bit further than last year!:(

I really enjoyed doing the texture on these sheep...I think it works well. I think this technique would look good on chickens and roosters as well...hmmm...yes I think I will.
Here are some pictures from my demo of 'Glacier Lake' and the final painting.The mountains are made much lighter with a dry brush technque after using the palette knife ( to bring out the texture) and the trees are added last. It was a lot of fun doing this demo but I did get a little flusterd and got tougne tied quite a bit..
