Cedar Raven


I finally got to it today.  And it feels done! Though it looks a bit different in this upload, not as intense. I painted this specifically for the show this weekend which is also titled "Signs Of Spring." There is a lot of surface detail so do click on the image to see the larger size.

I put the two side by side, so the before & after can be compared. A few things needed addressing: The rocks were too similar in size & visual weight, and needed to be pushed back a bit. The focal point (plant) was too small, practically disappearing. It looks better now, don't you think?

This is lovely...I do so ever love the little breath of green at the bottom...and oh my!... the layering and all the extra little touches...amazing!

It does make a big difference when you push back the rocks and add more details to the plant. This is even better. I also love that brown in the upper right hand corner. This piece is so nicely balanced in color and texture. Wonderful work.
