Original Oil Painting Winter River Bend

Winter River Bend 

12" x 12" 
Painted on gessobord.

I painted this using a reference photo from my class. I added rocks and adjusted tree lines, etc. Usually when I am painting from a photo that I took or someone else, towards the end I am painting straight with the painting. I turn the monitor off and just look at the painting and ask it what it needs. If my eye movement seems to fall off the page then I know to darken an area, minimize detail or add something to stop the movement. I feel this painting has a nice movement to it. I hope you think so too.
