Swamp's End by arisuonpaa Swamp's End by arisuonpaa
This is kind of a self portrait, as my last name is translated as "swamp's end" :)

Still trying to learn how to handle acrylic color. This is my third painting using acrylics. Painted on 55x40cm canvas using limited palette of red, yellow, blue, white and black.

Your work is very impressive, I like the way that the barren trees are done in this

There is great feeling in this painting, nice blend of colors and effective use of brushstrokes. I love the dark, misty feeling, unnerving yet calming at the same time.

you are really really good at landscapes. :D The light on the logs and water and everything is so realistic, and even though swamps arent that pretty you made this one just that. It's really good!

So your telling us that you used something that is difficult on canvas >w< Dude canvas is so annoying to work with but the result that you have come up with is awesome. The water, the trees even the blur for the distance. Everything just seems so well perfect in this. I love how the blue in the distance makes it look like there's a slight fog up ahead.

I fully don't understand the meaning behind self portrait unless you are trying to convey what is going through your mind art wise? But the art is amazing. A swamp is more beautiful then some thing and you really showed that in your painting.

Your work is fantastic. I lack the patience to even attempt pics like this.
