hi everyone :)
i am really getting this painting done but i still feel like i have a long way to go.
i made a few mistakes too :eek: i painted in too many flag poles so i needed to lift paint to put more flags in.

here is an update. i am using Aliz crimson for the red of the flags. later, i will add the folds and shadows.

very clean and crisp. when i first glanced at the pic, i thought you had painted some of the flags gray to make them recede, now reading your note, i see that you scrubbed them out.

thanks Fun
thanks Bethany. i really messed up. if you look at the tree to the left, i had to lift pigment there too.
i am really worried i won't be able to lift more of the gray from the painting and the flags are going to look terrible.

Sarah, just keep plugging away... I hadn't noticed the tree until your pointed it out... I'm certain the flags will be fine when you get your brights in there...
