On a Slow show day you can pass the time with some fun stuff like this. From an old reference look for little gems. Hitem hard with the color! Slop on the paint!

Yes, I like how you've *zero-ed* in on this piece, and the colours are lovely! You do such cheerful paintings.

Hi Howard...this is singing!! A suggestion... the yellow in the lower right seems a bit discordant...the yellow looks good in the tree and on the ground near the house, I think there might just be too much yellow in on place right there. Otherwise I love this!!

Are you asking if 'others' zero in or is that the name of your painting??? I will answer that "YES, I like to zoom in, zero in and get up close." And you painting is amazing and I wouldn't change a thing :clap: :clap: . Great crop, or zero'ing in as you say!

Yes, I zero in. I frequently find jems in reference pictures such as this. It is amazing what you can find in a picture. You've done a good job of "zeroing in" on this one.

Your painting is lushious!
I tend to zoom in rather alot, especially on florals...Infact, I've recently been trying to zoom out a little.

Hi Howard,
Bold and vibrant, great stuff! You can practically see the energy with which you applied the paint. Terrific!

Beautiful painting. I like closeups, but I never thought of zeroing in like that. Thanks for the idea!

Wonderful! Thanks for the tip. I need to do this and can see where it would be quite beneficial to a beginner like me who tries to put too much in a scene.

Hi gang, Seems like there might be enough interest here to have a weekly zeroin? Plan 1 hour but paintem FAST. Keepem small, this one is 8x10. There're not going to hang in the Louvre!!! (maybe when we're dead).

Valri, you get to go first, you got the right answer!

Jan, thanks for pointing out that yellow snafu. My first wife said I always over do everthing! Here's my correction.
