Really like this and the colours you have used - I went for a walk yesterday to a local pond where there are lots of geese, took a few photos and was wondering how to paint them so your painting has given me a few pointers. Love your gallery.

Thank you all for your comments! Hello Robert, I agree, I think that more impasto would bring more life into the branches and foliage. I think the colour dominance of the background doesn't help but I know for next time! :)
