New Hope, Pennsylvania, looking from Lewis Island in Lambertville NJ on a Summer's early morning. A pretty popular viewpoint with the area artists and photographers, so I thought I'd give it a go.

Egg Tempera, 9" x 12"

Very nice. I imagine it would be difficult to show one of these as a work in progress, as you can't see the detail so well on a monitor, but it would be cool to watch over your shoulder.

Yes, the finish is great , but what about the "you do this to get this" kinda thing? Inquiring minds want to know, not to mention us nosey types.:wink2:

Thanks, I'll see what I can do. It'll be a while since I'm putting ET painting aside for a few weeks.

I did a WIP a while ago over at the Online Artists Guild site. (http://onlineartistsguild.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1831)

I figured out how to get to the index page on that site Jeff, and thanks for showing it. What a great assemblage of talented artists! I am enjoying the demos and a lot of it will help in my own work. Thank you so much.

Never heard of this site before,,,,,its great.

OMG, Jeff, that's a lot of detail! 'Love the touch of the boaters in the water. Wonderful composition.

I am totally amazed at your ability and talent with egg tempera. The light bouncing off the buildings, bridge and water is beautiful.
