Nature's Fire by kach-back Nature's Fire by kach-back
Here is the finished painting done from a great photograph by :iconrezzanatakol: which is linked here [link]

It is 31 x 41 cm (12 x 16 in) in size, and painted on Arches Watercolour Block 140 LB Cold Pressed. It is a mixed media in that I have used some White Gouache with my watercolours.

This picture was chosen by her, and will be sent on to her shortly. I will post more about it in my journal.

*** Edit *** Colour adjusted to match the original much better.

Thank you very much for including me in your wonderful feature. That painting you've featured is one I did for a fantastic photographer here on dA. I had asked her about using one of her floral photos to use as a reference for a painting I wanted to do as a gift for a friend of mine. She not only gave me permission but sourced the original file and emailed it to me. In return I offered to do a painting for her, and the reference for "Nature's Fire" was the one she chose. That painting is now with her in Turkey. :-)

Thank you so much, and thank you for all of the :+fav:'s of my work as well. :D

Rezzan is one of the nicest people I have ever met, and Nature's Fire was her own choice of a reference for me to paint from. She was so kind as to allow me to paint from another photo of hers, and even sent me the original photo to work from. In return I offered to do a painting for her and this was what she chose. Personally it is one of my favourite paintings of my own. :nod:

Thank you very much for saying so, and for the :+fav: of it. Rezzan was so nice as to let me use a reference of hers, that I offered to paint her a picture of her own choosing and this was the one she picked.  I can only take credit for the painting part, as she took the great photo, and chose it for me to paint for her. :D

Thanks, I think it's because I spent a lot of time in the outdoors growing up and later on in life that I am most comfortable with the subject matter of it.

Thank you so much for the kind words. :-) That painting was done from a reference by :iconrezzanatakol:, she chose the reference, as I had offered to painting any one of her's for her as she was kind enough to let me do another one of her's earlier. She owns the original painting as well. The :+fav: of it is much appreciated as well.
