Winter Stream


  


3" x 4"  Acrylic

Need to put more light in the painting.  It is lighter than the image you see.

I like it as it is, James. I can see & feel the ice in the foreground, and that darkness directs my eye right back to that little spot of warm light.

James, this is just lovely. Everytime I see one of your new pieces, I take out a penny to remind myself just how detailed you are in your miniatures. This would lovely on one of our stamps.

Cheers, Bell

Beautifully painted, James. So much information in so little space. You have my admiration.

Bell and Ann-
Happy to see you into my blog.
Miniature is always a fun thing to work with. Challenging but fun!! The acrylic is always the best to work with. Going to go back to mixable oil this time.
