My latest . . .

This is a rather crude interpretation of church on an island in Lake Bled in Slovenia.

I say crude because it's not the most accurate reproduction, but it's close. Besides, if I wanted it to be exact I could have posted a photo.

You do water and mountains very well, D. Nice job.

I agree, the mountains look great, and together with the water the picture has real dimension. I think the "crudeness" of the church works well with this--it gives me a sense of emotion about the place, a feeling of history and warmth. It makes me want to walk around the grounds and explore a bit. Good job!

Very nice. What is the medium? It looks like oils, yet there is a softness that looks like water colors. Nice.

Thanks guys. (use of the previous word does not notate gender or society conflegration)

Kay, it is oils. I sometimes thin the oils to create the softer contrast. Kinda like I did with the cross painting to the left. I didn't do it with the seascape thus the stronger definition.

Thanks for posting it. You are right about posting a photo, and besides it doesn't give you the thrill that creating this did. That's the fun.
