Re: What's On Your Easel?....April 2012

Some more progress on this one today. Am a bit happier with how it's progressing now, but still quite a long way to go. This is oil on stretched canvas, 20 x 16.

Graham, this is challenging for sure but I think you are doing wonders with it.

Re: What's On Your Easel?....April 2012

I am unsure about the palm tree right in the middle of the picture; it's in the reference picture but I think it stands out too much. Should I lose it?

Graham I think you should, unless you want it in some way to be the focal point.

Lavenderlady - your rendering of the young lady with the harmonica is not only done superbly, but evokes her passion. Wonderful stuff!

I'll finish up on this one this weekend and then post it in the open critique forum.



I really do love this piece.
