The lovely reference photo is from Ruth Archer on Paint my Photo. Think it is nearly finished, but was wondering whether I should add some grass or pebbles on the ground or something somewhere, or keep it simple and leave as is. I hope you like it and any advice you can give will be welcomed.

Great job Jenny. Yes I think that a little detail will help ground them, it's helpful to see what they're standing/sitting on!

I agree... just a little something to stand on instead of making them "float". Sweet scene.

I agree, very good job! And I also agree it needs some grass or something to tie it together.

Thank you Melissa, Ginger and Sue. This is my problem, I start these things, then start planning after I thought I was finished. That's the difference between a hobbyist and an artist I guess.

You are definitely an artist, Jenny.
We just give our thoughts. It's all personal. On occasion, I don't mind "floating" art. Mostly, I like it grounded or running off an edge to give the illusion that it keeps on going. Or fading out to black towards the edges.

You are very kind Ginger. I am working on 'grounding' them. Hope I can do up properly and not spoil it, but I agree, it will finish it off. I knew something was missing. Thanks for your help

Jenny love this here as bigger pic than PMP. I think you too are an artist, just working through different steps in the road. We all see things with our unique vision and you have. Might put into GIMP or Photoshop before you add anything to the board to be sure you like it.
But like the idea of the subject and it is well done!! Your scratching just continues to improve and evolve.

I like the rear view. Just a little indication of ground under them maybe with a few sprigs of grass, not much, just enough to give them place.

Very strong scratching here.
