    Balance Between Light and Dark

    This painting's composition achieves its balance by careful placement of light and dark areas, balancing these differently weighted areas in a visually pleasing design.

    I too feel bathed in gold

    Subtle, wide ranging values in a dominant palette of gold tones placed skillfully by their complements, and loose, lush brush strokes, capture this fleeting moment at dawn. I can believe I am right there, the warm breeze on my face.

    Awesome feeling of sunlight

    I find this painting to be so striking in both color and composition. The sense of golden sunlight just permeates my mind.

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.

    This painting just draws the viewer in. Really like the reflections in the puddles and the depth of field.

    So good!


    This really speaks to me. Well done!
