A view over the Sejroe Bay. Made this last year in the spring. It was a bit dark, because the sun was south east and here you are looking south. I tried not to let the sun decide the colors of the picture. That wasnt easy. :-) Today I brightened it dlightly, but it wasnt much help. Ah well. Pastel on velour paper.
Have a beautiful day. Still we have lovely weather as yesterday :) A little bit cooler but less wind.
Thank you for viewing and commenting :)

I really love how you captured so many shades of green in this. I quite like it.

Your vegetation really is masterfully done. What a beautiful scene!

I honestly don't feel this is too dark, though I didn't see the original drawing. But while there are lots of dark patches, it has lighter greens, mild yellows, etc. Maybe you could have used brighter yellows in spots, or brighter greens. I don't know. But maybe it would have gotten lighter if you had some more open 'space' in it---altering the photo in essence, to introduce some larger patches of bright greens (like the field behind that house---maybe, in the next piece, you could extend that, to break up the intense vegetation, and add more light into the piece as a whole). In any case, you get a fine balance between vegetation detail and vegetation "presence," ie, the clumps of hue that make up vegetation as well. Lots of billows here---very pastel-like---and a beautiful blue in the background, in the shoreline and surrounding land, and in the water (of course), and rubbed softly throughout the sky. The two tall trees are beautifully drawn, with mix of detail and softness. And the whole piece sings with a kind of pastel poem of summer colors. If you have trouble with the light, why not change the picture itself, to include more open areas, or something like that? I get the sense that the vegetation-areas in the photo have a lot of darker hues in them. In any case, it's hard to make all the right choices with a photograph, because if you lighten the vegetation too much, it will look forced and not real, I'd imagine. I don't know. But I find it a flowing pulsing and plush painting of a landscape. And your sky is really quite beautiful. Helle, I'm at an hour and 40 minutes, and I've only done 9 pieces---that's how slow I am these days. I have to go now, but I'll comment on others soon. I've seen everything, as you know, but it's always special to spend time commenting on your work, in your actual gallery. I hope you're having a peaceful and creative day!
