Now, that's what I'm talking about! Great subject. Excellent work on this Rodman.:thumbsup:

Glad you got your easel back, and that I am not the only one that can't remember where I loose things.:lol:

So you've been painting outside my house again!

Excellent work on the mansion Rod. Top notch - I could never do that

Err, not as good on the memory though :lol: Great you got it back though :thumbsup:

What an amazing place! When I see homes like this I want to knock on the door and ask for a tour!There are so many beautiful buildings in and around Indy...is this in Kokomo?

It's looking pretty fine so far.

So glad to hear you got your easel back! I take it that's it in the picture?

Hey - that looks like Mansfield, Ohio!
It also looks like a really neat scratch!

Rod--another eye catcher and even more curves. Well done!

Oh I want that house too! Can I buy it off you Patrick? How much? Money's not object.

Hey Rodman. This is really cool. Is there anyone living there and have they come outside to have a geek at what you are up to? Looking forward to the race to the finish.

Glad you got your painting gear back.

Wow, this is quite an undertaking. You are just amazing. I've noticed in your artwork that you are really a master at tone/values. I'm in awe and can't wait to see this progress.

Wow!!! I thought I new your style but this is a total surprise to me.

Hey Rod, ya missed a brick!

That's really great work. Especially plein air. I love all those textures and it has such depth. I could walk up that driveway from here. Very 3D is what I am trying to say which means the perspective is spot on. Have the owners seen it?

04-23-2011, 10:02 PM
Wow, that is amazing Rod. This is graphite, right?

04-23-2011, 10:19 PM
You did this plein aire?! :eek: HHHOLY

04-23-2011, 10:25 PM
You've managed to create a wide variety of amazing textures with this, Rod. Really wonderfully well done!

Excellent work on this. The hedges gives a sense of distance that adds to the enormous size of the Mansion. The hedges and walkway are pulling the viewer into the scene.:thumbsup:

Wow! you've really done a lot more with this since I last visited. The detail is quite remarkable and the overall image super.

Incredible Rod - there are soooo many different tones in this that it amazes me so many are possible. I did see that the second window in center has a crooked window "ledge" (don't know what to cal it), and the far right pillars look a bit crooked, but could be photo scew as well. Even so, it is really awesome!

Wow what a good job! Very nice to look at - so many different areas and details! And so glad you got your easel back - that's a relief!

That is just too cool!!! So many different textures. Tons of character in this piece! :thumbsup:
