Original oil paintings of Maine and Beyond....
Wonderful movement in you mark making. I can feel these trees swaying in the wind and see the water rippling.Kim
So what's the verdict in comparing the pastels to the oils Mary Ann? I like your touch with pastels - are they on a black base?Thanks for visiting my blog and the kind words too.
The Mangrove trees are very interesting...I'm not sure if I have ever seen one. The painting is wonderful and it reminds me of your expertise with grasses!
I agree, you have completely captured the feeling of movement. I am drawn in by the way you have created the trunks/branches. Bravo!
This is just fabulous, Mary Anne! I feel as if I am right there in the kayak with you. You definitely should keep up with a series of these mangroves!
