Finished a new woodland painting! First oil painting that size. The second picture is how the painting started out. How do you like it, could I do anything better?

I have the hardest time painting, but of the few new ones I'm working on I like this detail best so far - really proud of the water, as I struggle with that normally.
What do you guys think? Would love some honest thoughts - it is a work in progress.

So I'm having the hardest time finding creative energy to paint, do you have any tips for artists block?

I'd love some small easy creative tasks so I can get back into the groove of things without too much pressure.

A big ol' tree today. Old work in oils. Im having a hard time painting, getting motivated. Hopefully I'll find my creativity again some time soon.

A repost from my old account.
An oil study from photos I took on a walk, was a really good learning opportunity for light!

Hey friends of Mastodon.Art,
I have recently been posting a few garden related things that don't belong in the art category.

Do you folks feel I should make a separate account on a different instance for that?

I do feel like the gardening is part of my art as it inspires me so much.

Because I'm on a roll today I started watering my 1 year old ecospheres and I thought you'd maybe enjoy them.
They have been closed since I made them, there are actually small creatures in them, breathing the air the plants clean. You might see them on the closeup!

“Scottish Highlands” - August 2020
Where I would like to visit next year, when I move to Edinburgh.

Inspired by this photo:

Guys, with a new garden year soon beginning I was wondering:

Do you guys think Mastodon would enjoy to see some selfsustainable gardening content? I'm thinking about making an account where I post my progress :)

My friend took this photo of older works and studies when lying them out so she could pick one, I like how colourful they are all together!

A recent oil painting, I love what oil does for depth and light in landscape paintings, trying to improve my skills! I just started painting about a year ago.
Forests are so magic and inspiring to me!

Forest path. Large 10x14 25x35cm. Black fountain pen on heavy paper. In my shop.

Two gouache studies very loosely inspired by John F. Carlsons paintings. Just trying to get some light-hearted practice without thinking about them too much. I like the light airy feeling they give me.

A small gouache painting of a lush, beautiful swedish landscape. I'd love to go for a hike there right now.
(Reposting the paintings from my old profile so I have them here)

It snowed today. Last time it snowed a fieldfare came into the garden.

Spent a couple of hours wandering around a local botanical garden this morning. Here's a juvenile dusky flycatcher (the poofy one) and parent :)

Hi you friendly folks of Mastodon.Art!

I paint the things that make me happy. I hope they'll bring some calm and happiness to you too!

My favourite is painting forests. I use gouache, watercolours and If I'm really motivated, oils.

I'm excited to see loads of cool art and find new artists! Hope to learn from all of you!
