Thank you everyone for all your help. I did sand the frisket off. What a mess that was. I was afraid I would loose the entire painting. I am so happy I went with the heavier weight paper if this was on 140lb all would have been lost.
This is my hubby in our back yard on a lazy, hot Sunday afternoon.

Mr.Mouse is sleeping.

Good job..the heavier paper helps when corrections are needed. I use 300# all the time now.

This is a lovely painting and well done. One small thing - he seems to lose the top of his head a little - maybe all it would take to bring it into focus would be to darken the hammock ropes a little around his head? But dont do anything until you get a more expert opinion than mine:)

Nice job. although i think a bit of sky and some lower branches on the trees would help it. :)

There aren't any lower branches on those trees. I agree about the sky, I just might put some up in that left hand corner, after I darken John's face a bit. I think I am in a green phase : )

Neat job, a touch of blue in the background would also give you more depth in the painting. He sure looks restfull,

I did add the sky and it sure did the trick.
Thank you all. This made a great but late Father's Day gift for John.

Hi MM,

I'm sure John loved it. Looks like a nice place to kick back and relax, .......Karen
