CYPRESS SWAMP


I painted this beautiful swamp yesterday on a smaller panel and felt that I wanted to paint larger. It was interesting to me that there were as many similarities. I chose to paint with a more subdued pallette which more closely resembled the photograph. I like the results.

I love this one Linda. Don`t subdue your palette too much though. Well done and all the best.

Thanks Vic! I needed to hear that about the palette...sometimes I get too much pastel! Linda

I think I've only seen a couple of landscapes from you, and I love this one. I love that your signature style is still evident, loose and abstract!

Oh, Linda, this is GORGEOUS. I love seeing your wonderful abstract style applied in landscapes. The subtle shifts in your color choices are masterful, as is the bold, confident brushwork. Great idea to go larger, too. It certainly didn't hold you back.

Great brushstrokes and composition. Scrolled back and didn't see the smaller piece. Would love to compare.

Wonderful!

I love this, and love the subdued palette and abstract quality. Great use of grayed tones throughout.

Your strong style translates right through any subject you choose! I'd love to see this one on a huge canvas. Fabulous abstract lines. I am drawn to the light blue dots in the navy part of the tree trunk and those wonderfully soft greens and purples throughout.
