The Back 40

Postby rrsum » Sun Jan 31, 2010 12:12 am

I hunt pheasants in areas that look a lot like this in late November. Old fences, trees without leaves, overcast skies and thick
ush to provide cover for all kinds of wildlife. Feedback, good or bad, always welcome. :wink:

Rich,
What a great painting!
I like everything about it. I love the prospective and deep sense of depth you have created. The angle of the foreground fence sets this painting up so well. The balance for me is absolutely perfect.
You paint everything well but this is my favorite.
I have been struggling with a hunting type landscape for quite some time but just can’t seem to turn the corner and have become quite frustrated. I never quite, never but after viewing this, my batteries are recharged.
Great post!
Al

Oh wow-- I really like this one. The warm, full and rich tones are especially appealing contrasted with the use of light. The grass is excellant and how it fades into the shadow for the foreground. Nice!

This one is real nice. Looks alot like North Georgia.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

Another piece of stunning artwork!! Even though it is winter or early spring..whatever the time of year, it has such a softness, serene feel to it. I just love this!!!
