  • Most beautiful colour Marjorie. Super blending in the grass and shrubs. The top left had corner seems a distraction to me so very bright. It pulls the eye away from the centre of attraction. Cover it up and the plants and walk pop out more.

  • That soft light across the grass is beautiful Marjorie. I'm not sure if I like the texture effect for this kind of subject or not to be honest. I quite like the texture behind the wall at tree's the foreground texture, does it detract from the light and beauty of the subject?

  • The sunshine and shadows are super Marjorie. You have a very pretty garden judging by this scene.

  • Thanks John and Peter, Fiona, I think you're right, I hate the texture for this. When the weather improves, I intend to paint it again on an " unblemished" canvas.
    Thanks again, Sarah, Dennis and Manashree.

  • I think you're right about the texture question - when you're painting in oil, in particular, you can get all the texture you want from the paint itself: you can use knives, or just thick paint on a rough hog brush. Even so, while I don't think you needed the texture the tissue paper gave you - or could have achieved it in other and better ways - this still works, with its soft, reflected light. Hope your garden is soon looking as you want it to look - ours (I say ours, I just rent the place from the person who manages the garden) is currently crammed with bluebells, whitebells, primroses, and the occasional daffodil. It bursts out like that every Spring, despite the badgers' determined attempts to dig it all up.
