Des couleurs flamboyantes...
Les petits coups de couteau pour travailler certains brins d'herbe...
Je serai heureuse de voir cette oeuvre achevée.

Snow and colorful leaves! Gorgeous work, Celeste. I always love snowy scenes and to see one with the bold red leaves is super dramatic and super gorgeous.

Palette knife and fingers?
Great effect. Great atmosphere.
Love the reds.

Yes, the atmosphere is super! You managed to get a cold feel even using all the red in the bushes. A real trick!

Wow - brilliant and beautiful color set off by those gorgeous neutral areas.

The interesting figurative and very tonal piece in the previous blog set you up for wanting a spot of color? At least that is what happens to me.

Esta composición casi abstracta es muy bella. Es muy armoniosa. Me sugiere colores de otoño, el rojo de hojas otoñales de árboles junto a un suelo blanco nevado. Muy bello en su sencillez.

Un abrazo, Cleste.

This almost abstract composition is very beautiful. It is very harmonious. I suggest fall colors, the red of autumn leaves of trees next to a snowy white floor. Very beautiful in its simplicity.

A hug, Cleste.

(thank you Victor!)
