Stream Light by jjpeabody Stream Light by jjpeabody
I REALLY love how this image came out. I used warm shadows and cooler light to pull this off. It gives it a nice serene feeling to me. I used filtered light to illuminate the stream and to draw a viewer into the image. Let me know if you like :)

Probalby not really astonishing, but: I looooooove it :)
Yeah, I definitely feel dragged into the wood - I even have the feeling, I need to cross the little water-arms in the front, and as if my feet are about to get wet :) then I would definitely chose the way on the right hand side in order so look at the landscape on the other side :) you should paint, what I am about to see there :)

I think the most spectacular moments happen: at the stream (with the blues and purples), in the bottom left side with the rocks and the bright white grass on the pathway.

great range of values and good job using different hues for the shadows and highlights 

texture wise this is quite amazing as well even the brief gloss on the stream in the foreground are perfect

only thing i want more of is a little bit more light on the rocks/mud at the bottom of the stream (but that is being really picky)

amazing job

Reminds me of a park I used to go to. The water in the stream was very much the color of some teas.

I love the contrast between the dark areas and the patches of light, even though I personally usually stay away from really dark areas because I like sunny and happy better. But that's just because I don't like the dark. But the light also really gives your eyes something to focus on.

Very nice piece, the background blue hues are what caught my attention, then the detail in the foreground took over, nice work! :)

I love contrast between the shade and the bright spots - the green & blue where light is getting through. Lovely :)

All of your drawings pull an emotion out of me whenever I see them :') This one made me feel like I was an adventurer on a quest and there could potentially be something hidden in those shadows ready to jump out and get me :> So I feel like I'm on my guard. But at the same time those pretty bright areas put me at ease and I just want to go flop down in a patch of sunlight and take a rest :>

Excellent work! Keep it up :D

Awww, Thanks for the feedback. I wonder if the blues make it mysterious and unknown, but the warms make it inviting?

The blue DEFENITELY makes it mysterious :dummy: it looks like a fog is rolling in, but the bright areas make a nice contrast to that X3
