Foggy Forest # 78


My first acrylic painting since I started the challenge. I knew it would take several layers to get the effect I was after and figured watercolors would probably turn to mud in the process. I used to paint a lot with acrylics, but this is the second in a decade. Let’s hope the coming decade is a little more productive!

I painted this from a photo Dale took recently. The sun had thinned the fog, but hadn’t obliterated it. The result was magical rays of sun reaching deep into the forest. In all honesty the photographs we took that day are way more awesome than my painting, but I enjoyed trying to build depth into my painting.

...beautiful, Elva! I can feel the stillness of a deep forest. You captured the rays of sunlight so well. If I let my imagination go, it feels like an enchanted forest--I'm sure an elf or two could be found here!

Love the sun streaming in but what really pulls my eye in is the the sun lite leaves on the left....nicely done.
