A New Landscape - Waterways, a view of the marsh by Jan Blencowe

Waterways, acrylic on linen,24x30

It took a long time but I finally finished this piece! I needed about a week away from it before I knew how to pull the whole thing together.

I have another that's pretty much done, but it is a dark painting overall and the light outside hasn't been bright enough to get a good photo that captures the subtle reflections in the pond. When the photo is too dark it ends up looking like grass! So a post of that one will have to wait.

Jan, there is such an old world feel to this landscape. I wish I could articulate what I mean. It is like looking at what I would expect to see from the masters, truly. Lovely work!

When I saw this, my first impression was that the medium was pastel. I am amazed that it is acrylic. I wish I could get these effects when I paint in acrylic. This has such an ethereal feel to it. I love it!

Great atmospheric perspective. The limited palette seems to accentuate a sense of deja vu. Well done.
