Elk River

Elk River

16x20 canvas, acrylics. There is something I am not satisfied with but I hate I can't figure out what. It did take me forever to paint the water, I wanted to share the blue greens it has and serenity of the river and wildlife is always changing from many varieties of ducks to turkeys, deer and such.


Because I was afraid I would not remember some things I took some pic's to use as ref. of a river close by called Elk River here in Athens, AL. (USA) . I love visiting there. It constantly changes.

Outstanding
by: Guy

Betty, this is just gorgeous. Your detail is remarkable, and I love the slightly muted quality of your colors and the way you blended them. You say there is something about your painting you dislike but don't know what it is, and darned if I can put my finger on it either. A preponderance of horizontal lines and movement in the water, the wood on the bank, etc. perhaps?
This is a wonderful piece, very beautiful and calming. You have a very nice spirit that emanates forth onto the canvas. I would go out of my way to see more!

Hi Betty,

I think you made a beautiful painting. The birds make that there is movement in it.
Well done,
