Watercolor and acrylic are very different- although I could have tried to approach it in a similar way, I have to paint how it comes naturally to me.
Here is the painting I had posted.
Somehow I couldn't do a winter tree. Hmmm. I had done the distant trees first and they were green and lush and summery. So I made a tree with leaves, and added fireflies into the middle ground. I sure hope the client likes this!
its not a great picure,as you can see we are having another snowstorm. those are snowflakes- not shooting stars!
I still need to tweak this a bit more...
and I really want to say thanks to David and Carole!
