Emerald Rhapsody - OIL PAINTING by AstridBruning Emerald Rhapsody - OIL PAINTING by AstridBruning
24 x 24 inch Oil on canvas

Another difficult one to photograph, should be more green but if I adjust in PS throws everything else out. I used viridian and ultramarine which may help describe the true colour.

The reference is from a beautiful photograph taken by Alexandra Sophie :iconalexandrasophie:fav.me/d3l3h16 who kindly gave me permission to paint it.

You did it again! Great work, I love the lighting effect in it and great use of color (although it looks different in real life).

Beautiful work on this. I initially was immediately draw to the girl in the water, but the more I look at it, the more I see all the little details of the trees, reflections in the water, and textures of everything. I love the colors you chose and how brightly the girl stands out.
