Autumn warm-up


oil on canvas 12x16,
a little different this one,tried a bit off knive for the foreground leaves,
not sure,looks a bit to bitty to me.
might do a bit more to those cows?

Really nice! I think the knife work gives it more variety and contrast; it also gives the painting more depth, I think.

you are right Lesley,a few sharper edged will benefit my work...

About the cows, I don't know a tiny bit maybe but then again it's soo deep this one Rob.

My favor of yours for the moment!!

rob ijbema said...

the cows need a bit of warming up,
they look like marble statues at the moment...no details

Fantastic Rob. One of my favorites. Great palette and textures.

I think too that the sharper edges in the foreground foliage create depth. A very beautiful painting with loads of light in it.
BTW I just returned from a painting week and there will soon be some PA paintings on my blog.
