Re: Reverie - FINISHED

Here's the progression - I hope I can get this to work so bear with me if you see this come and go while I get it right.

Re: Reverie - FINISHED

Thanks Pat, Donna, Susan, and Adriana - glad you enjoyed it.

Deborah, I will post an easel photo - I have several in my camera.

Donna - I'll also post the frame that I am going to use. This is the second of a pair, so it will be the same frame and mat set-up that I used for my Salt Marsh painting. Perhaps I will post them both together and see what they look like.

Re: Reverie - FINISHED

LOL - yes, in looking back through the progression there are several versions that I might want to try, including the first one. There seems to be special elements that I like in each one - especially in the water.

Donna - I am real happy how the left side bank turned out - I just picked up a color that I had used elsewhere and just lightly touch it here and there over the darks. Something for me to remember too!

Okay, Deborah, here it is on the easel in natural light, no flash.



Donna, here's the companion piece matted and framed - regular glass

Re: Reverie - FINISHED

I love seeing paintings on the easel this way. It's like visiting your studio, you know? I can see if differently, somehow. I REALLY like this one, and it will look terrific framed the same as the other one. No doubt about it.

Thanks for showing your progression Kat (thank goodness we aren't watercolorists!) This will look stunning with its companion! I really like the frame you chose and the double mats always class up the look.

Re: Reverie - FINISHED

Wow have I been missing alot. I just finished reading everything and looking at all the changes. You really pulled it off in a most grand way. Wounderful painting all the hard work surely paid off. I just love the sky, water, & reflections.

Re: Reverie - FINISHED

Thanks Deb, Donna and Scotty. I am hoping this thread will be an encouragement to others who struggle with their art that they must perserver and stay true to their vision.

As an update to this painting, I entered this into a museum show and it was accepted and on top of that, it was chosen to be on the announcement cards.
