It would be awesome if you could the article, as this helps promote it so more people will notice the art featured. Thanks!
This is a wonderful painting. Zoomed out, it looks like a photo with a colour filter applied. There's lots of wonderful details to study, like the almost scratched appearance of the fence posts, or the cracked dirt of the path. It must have taken a lot of time and patience to do this!
It reminds me a lot of the landscape paintings coming from the Romantic movement, especially art from Thomas Cole, who is a marvelous landscape painter. Just like his work, I can get lost looking at your picture, and I just want to reach out and touch the grass. I really love the strong yellow highlights and the depth of field you created.
SO difficult to do until you see the answer and its like... DUH.
I think it might be more your technique of applying the colour though now that i've thought about it
