Artwork Description

This is a scan of an 8 inch by 10 inch oil painting. Because it's textured, it didn't scan quite right (there is clearly muddy/wet fur in the original). This is the watcher of the Forest, a beast that guards the forest from intruders. I'd started out this painting with little to no knowledge of oil paints, and finished it having learned quite a bit (including the necessity of "drying time"). I'm particularly fond of the almost impressionistic Fall scenery.

I really like your use of contrast with the bright fall leaves against the very dark foreground tree trunks.

Art at its best.
