Night Sky Outside of Town
      #4722855 - 07/31/11 01:43 PM Attachment (344 downloads)

Painting landscape is a hobby of mine (you can check out my art blog at: http://autumnglade.blogspot.com/), but I had never painted a nocturne before.

As an astronomer, it only makes sense to paint a scene like this - enjoy!

Actually, it's an acrylic painting. I tried oils years ago, but I never had much like with them, so I went back to acrylics.

Glad you folks like it, especially considering how hard it is to get a decent photo of a dark painting.

Very nice. The treatment of the trees is especially good.

Very nice Matthew. I know all about trying to shoot dark paintings...

Yep, it is tricky to get a photo of something this dark!

The style reminds me of an artist whose work I really adore... Monet.

Calming and serene. Me likee very much.

I agree w/ Glenn. It does have a soft, impressionistic ambience.

Good work.

Oooooooooh!!! I love it Matthew!

Soothing for the soul, that's how I feel about your painting!

Thanks for posting.

Jean
