View Full Version : Around the Bend

I've been working on this for the past three days, off and on. I almost tossed it yesterday, but I let it stay on my easel. Today when I walked into my studio I decided to spray some SpectraFix on in and see if I could save it. I don't know if it worked but I thought I would post it anyway. The title means where the trail takes you and where the painting almost drove me.;)

This is painted from one of the photos I took at a bird sanctuary the other day. The sun was shining and it created some neat tree shadows along the trail. I started this with a Pan underpainting and sprayed it with alcohol(thanks for the idea, Chris). I used a variety of soft pastels ontop. It is painted on 8 x 10 Uart 400 grit paper. I welcome any and all comments.

Thanks for looking.

You are on a roll, Doug! the bold purple shadows really stand out.
What did you not like about it?

any chance you could show us the photo? It would be easier to give you some help if you can do that.
