  • You continue to make progress in acrylic - I like the play of light in this one, and although some of the forms are a little under-drawn for my taste (by which I suppose I mean I like more detail and tonal contrast) actually I don't think I'd change this at all, because it works as it is, and you wouldn't want to overdo it. I like the way the intensity of tone recedes in the trees, and the warm brown you've used for the trunks, with a bit of white in the foreground trunk. I also like the composition - it's unfussy, and you want to go round that corner to see what's there. A very satisfying and peaceful painting. By the way, you said in your comment on one of your other acrylics that you found acrylic paper slippery by comparison with watercolour paper: I couldn't agree more - I really loath acrylic paper! You can of course use acrylics very successfully on watercolour paper, and I much prefer it to the other awful stuff.

  • Wow - you really have captured the effect of the light on the path and through the trees in this one, Stephen. Impressive work!
