Hi Matt, this is Caitlin.
For this painting I was continuing my experimentation of how to paint a forest without detailing every single leaf. I quite like the bushes and ferns in the foreground.
I also tried using gouache over the top to create sunbeams. This time I used white tinted with a bit of yellow, but I think it turned out too cool, next time I might use straight raw sienna or something similar to give it a really warm feel.
This is from a photo that I took in person, so I partially followed the photo, but deviated a bit with the colours based on how I remembered them in real life.
The size is 6 x 8 inches.
Any and all critique welcome.
