Paint Party Friday - Week 50 - Winter Fields finished!

THANK YOU for all your comments last week about how to finish off my landscape painting. I really appreciated them all - so many great ideas!

I added a little blue to the snow and silver to the Moon and the trees to the painting. Here is the final finished painting:

"Winter Fields"

Right side

And I started a new painting - very much still a WIP (work in progress) though...


I am also still working on Ayala Art's 29 Faces in February challenge and this is face #24 - another in my series of scientists...

Hope you have a great time at Paint Party Friday! I look forward to visiting you!

  8. The trees and little bushes add a lot of interest to the painting. Sometimes it's a good thing and inspiration to ask for ideas on how to finish. Great work!

  9. Many projects underway right?. you has been great the box in 3D, I usually work very often this format, so avoid so many frameworks, I recommend you hang them directly without framing. Saludos

  27. Hello Eva, thanks so much for hosting Paint Party Friday. I love winter so your field piece greatly appeals, great to take your time, slowly and in its own time the painting unfolds.
