Summer At The Creek Fischerbruch In Rostock by BarbaraPommerenke Summer At The Creek Fischerbruch In Rostock by BarbaraPommerenke
Oil on canvas, original size 80cm x 60cm.

The historic, partly canalized river branch of the Warnow, the small Fischerbruch, where formerly fishermen lived at and which became a real oasis right behind the medieval town wall of my hometown Rostock / Germany.

this is a really beautiful awe inspiring painting, the colours are very pretty and refreshing. I love the composition and your attention to detail when it comes to your tone, lighting, and proportion. Really exquisite piece. Also your very good at your oil painting, i tried to use oil paints for the first time the other day, lets just say we did not get along! .. so i understand a little, the work you have put into this. Very nicely done.

Thanks so much for your great comment! This piece is painted with only palette knives. But believe me, the first time I tried knives it ended that I scratched all paint off and took my brushes again, lol. But much later I tried again after I accidentally saw somebody working with them in a tutorial. After that I tried again and now I prefer them instead of brushes! So it is completely normal that your first oil painting didn't turn out the way you would have liked. Don't give up! Try to watch other people using oil paints (tutorials on YouTube or in a painting class maybe?). But you are right, there is always a lot of work (and paint!) in such pictures no matter how experienced you are. Oil paints are my fav medium along with pastels.

I love reflections in the water, very well done. and whole forgroud. I'm not completely satisfied with trees in the backgound, they're like some abstract patches.

About colours. I wanted to say that I don't like the use of carmine but when I thought about it, it work very nice with light blues and brings life into the landscape.

Thanks so much for your nice comment! Well, others like especially the impressionist look of the background trees and the foreground trees less, lol.
Concerning carmine: these actually are the tones deep madder and pink I have used. You have to be really careful combining them with other colors. You should stay with cooler tones, this is my experience.
There were Japanese cherry trees with such carmine leaves in somebody's yard there at this creek, and the contrast to the green looked too interesting to me not to paint them!

you're mostly welcome c:
I know that you have to be quite careful with any clear and vivid colours. cooler tones seems resonable.

aha, as a nice inspiration. my painting teacher use to say that the landscape or anything that we are painting is just a pretext to composition of our painting - we don't have to copy the exact same view that we see :>

Really, you even must not copy what you are seeing (exept it is just an exercise for studying certain forms, perspectives and so on). What you finally create on your paper or whatever medium is what your mind is seeing or feeling in this particular scene. It is like eating the scene with your eyes, then it gets "digested" in your mind before you finally create your artwork. I think this is the most important part of the creativity.
Added to that the artist can rearrange scenes to better compose them or he can overdo certain properties of the object or person to better show its character.
This is where the fun starts :-).
Have fun with your paintings!

Nice combination of colours and the brush strokes!However, i think the right side of the painting (the trees by the boats) have a bit of too much darkness.But, i do like the contrast between the colours, it shows that you are confident in using different shades.The river has a beautiful reflection.Well done! :D

Thanks a lot for your thoughtful comment! I'm glad you enjoyed looking at it. This picture is only painted with palette knives.
Against the glaring brightness of water and sky (which makes you kinda blind), shadowy places can appear really dark. I intentionally overdid light and shadow to show just like that. The same on the other side of the creek where shadow is under the trees. Originally there are some different green tones (a little brighter and really dark ones). A photograph can't really replace the original.
The painting can only be a part of the reality, so if you would be able to look higher up to the top of the trees on the right side, the highest branches would let some more sun shining through and it would become brighter again.
