My favorite of this series of Gary's challenge paintings, Pat. I love the job you did here and can almost feeling the sun and mist myself...Just beautiful!

Thanks, Autumn, I was shivering a little also. I put some burn sienna in the grasses to try to "warm" it a bit.LOL

I have to say that your painting was my favorite of all those done for this month's Wilderness Art Challenge. The backlighting is done so skillfully, and you have created such a wonderful sense of muscularity and movement in the moose. VERY well done, Pat!

Pat, Great job on this challenge! Love the backlighting and the frosted grasses! I know this one was fun!

You finished this painting beautifully -- love the backlighting on the moose and how your grasses are glowing with the sun. You've captured the "atmosphere" of color nicely.

Claire, Rosemary, & Lyn....thanks so much for your wonderful comments and for your visits.

You rose to the challenge - the back-lighting is beautiful. I have been following a few of the monthly challenges and have noticed your paintings. I will be attempting my hand at painting soon and watercolor & acrylics are my paints of choice. I will be looking to your blog a lot for "guidance" I think.
