11/29/11 Carolina Marshes

This is the largest painting I have attempted so far. What fun to paint large. I'm afraid I'm hooked on the larger canvases now!
I have always loved North Carolina and the Lowcountry. This image is one of my favorites so I attempted to paint it. My fellow studio artists helped me with some great advice about paintings and distance and my friend, Mark brought to my attention some shadows that I hadn't painted properly. Thanks everyone. It truly takes a village to complete a painting. Our critiques are very gentle and loving so it is easy to take. It is amazingly hard to put yourself out there to be criticized even with close friends! Thanks again everyone for all the help.
