Valley Study for the Month of May

Martin Stankewitz, Germany


Here it is....My very own Martin original Gouache.
Very cool!!!

This ideal valley is very near to Martin’s house where he paints his Sketchercise contributions.  I have gotten to know these trees very well and so appreciate his ability to use gouache, design and color to convey these areas of heavenly solitude.  I love how my eye is drawn through the painting by the positioning of tree groupings, placement and overlapping.

oh this is luscious - it feels so fresh and the colours are very natural and there is a lovely sense of place. Great use of gouache.

Everything Pat and Vivien said. And great texture in the card. Bravo Martin. I love your use of darks to frame the picture and lead me in and through those trees on the right. But I think that's what Pat was saying anyway.

What a wonderful sky echoed in the warm grasses. And the dark foreground works beautifully.

You can be sure: Martin translates the landscape here is very authentic. Super card!
