About the Image(s)

Iowa is known for mainly growing corn and soybeans but there is also some wheat production. Original captured on Sunday morning June 27th with a Fuji X-T2 camera, 55 mm lens (83mm equivalent), f7.1, ISO 100 assembled from 4 exposures from 1/60 to 1/500 second. After initial processing in ACR the image was processed through D.A.P. using the Watercolour template with some adjustment to brightness and brush size. This image was layered over the original and blended in Normal mode.

Watercolor was the PERFECT medium for this image. The serenity of the scene was made even better with its watercolor tonalities. For me, I can actually sense the gentle movement of the wheat and background trees. Excellent rendition.   Posted: 07/12/2021 10:18:04

I like the watercolour redition but find I want to oversaturate the standard watercolour density. I think this could have used a bit less green.   Posted: 07/12/2021 11:14:56

I like your rendition of this image. I personally enjoy the over-saturated colors and your medium. Your edge is unique and draws my eye to it right away and maybe because it is also white. Not sure that is good or not but it does set off the image.   Posted: 07/16/2021 16:04:18

Well done Terry , Your water colors are great and I like the border used. The etched line on the tree line is a bit too definite and I think that your painting will be enhanced by softening the tree tops.   Posted: 07/19/2021 04:25:13

Those lines are called "Expressive Lines" and accentuate or otherwise help define the edge of an element. Commonly used in drawings and watercolour paintings.   Posted: 07/21/2021 23:02:56

I really like the DOF you captured with the wheat foreground, the ear woods, and the distance woodland and farm, which is situated perfectly between the woodland elements. And the clouds provide the drama. A beautiful and pastoral scene improved through your artistry.   Posted: 07/19/2021 17:42:47

The intense color of the wheat really gives a lift to the scene and focuses my eye on it, while the darkened clouds help point the eye down to it from the top. I like the "watercolor on white background" look of the final product, reminding me more of an actual watercolor painting. Now that I looked again at the tree tops, I agree with Gerhard that softening them would enhance the watercolor look.   Posted: 07/21/2021 19:12:18
