Follow Me

I've had the idea to do this scene  for a while now. I tried it out as an ACEO...and I'm still enchanted with it. Look for a larger version to come. The ACEO is listed here

I admire your work.

Oh now this is exquisite! I see this same scene often in some of the waterways near where I live.

Can I ask a question about your palette? Is yellow ochre a common denominator? (I'm not meaning to be rude, truly curious as I try to figure out colors and how they look against other colors. I love how you use color!)

These little guys have so much personality! Of course its not rude!
I used yellow ochre in the foreground here and mostly hookers green dark and a little burnt sienna.
On this one I covered the card with gel medium first then used the acrylics in thin coats in the background.

Thanks Kathleen! There is so much I don't know! Gulp.
