Illustration Friday Submission

So..I decided to submit my painting  "American Summer" 
for this week's Illustration Friday. Perfect for the "Summer" topic. 


  1. That's gorgeous, I really like the composition and having the diver be completely vertical. What did you paint it with, and do you have any tips on adding depth to greenery and trees? My trees always look so flat :(

    1. thanks for kind comments! I used oils. I would say values would add to the depth of your trees. Try doing some studies of trees in monochrome (one color) like grey or brown. Separate yourself from what the mind knows about color and just focus on value. I think you'll find your trees getting some dimension. Hope that helps!
