Beautiful images, Li! Thank you!! :clap:

Here's the modern African Queen Captain setting off on another voyage. Loved the movie. Just the thought of those leaches on Bogey still make me squirm!! :eek:

This is oil on a 7x5 canvas panel. This was done with a painting knife. I really enjoy the results of a knife painting. Strange.. I always have to push myself to get started on knife piece.....probably because I'm so unsure of controlling a knife until I actually get into using one.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting! :)

Done in less than 2 hrs.

Wonderful knife work, Deano. Love your background and deep shadows...esp the deep blue in the sunglasses.

I love your knife work Deano. I can never get the hang of it but it makes for such a rich, expressive painting. Beautiful colors and contrast. Likeness is right on. Beautiful!
