Stage 2 landscape

I've painted the color onto the grisaille I had started a couple days ago. There are a few touch ups to do, but it's pretty much finished. This was another good experiment for me.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Creekside, oil on 12x9 canvas panel

I think I spent time here as a child--my favorite place. Is that a bird on the tree?

Like this a lot. I liked it though, before too.

La lumière du matin semble se lever subitement, d'une façon magique... Vous êtes une petite ensorceleuse ma chère Céleste... Bisous

Out-freaking-standing! Yes, I'd say your experiment worked quite well.

I love seeing the light in the distance beyond the shade of the trees along the river... I am traveling through your painting.

This is brilliant, mood, colour composition, everything so right. It's like a backwards landscape with the blue tones in the foreground and the brights in the distance. Clever!

The water is beautifully painted. The whole painting is wonderful.
Love the colour palette.

The receding atmosphere makes this a beautiful journey upriver. You use value well.
