Spring's Promise

Another challenge. Spring trees. I did not realize until Johannes's classes how much I clone everything, trees, tree limbs, mounds in the water, everything! Even after I finish and photo, I see clones. It seems when I fix the clones I even clone the fix with something else!! I am learning so much. I still feel my work is not as dramatic as it has been..perhaps when I get the basics down, I will start getting to the one color per stroke. Maybe need to make more dramatic value study. I think I am so worried about not going over and 8 on the value scale that I end up making everything mid tone.


  1. This was uploaded for Johannes to comment. Would like to hear what he has to say.

  2. Well, I happen to think that this incredibly lovey, peaceful and serene! Beautiful painting!
    Wish I was there! Kathy
