Nancy.. Still refining The Fish and glazing... Gonna put some foliage in there... either aquarium or reef (maybe a bit of both and apply one or two more glazes before detailing.. Need to get this down as the fins of the background fish are semi tranparent,,,)

Also playing around with one or two exercises while waiting for the glazes to dry such as a limited palette landscape attempt at one of Liam Rainsford's paintings...

I'm working on a master copy of Landseer's Distinguished Member of the Humane Society. Working up from a grisaille... which I haven't finished yet.

Looking good, you two!

I am taking the month off from painting to catch up on other things.

This painting is no longer in progress, and in fact it's completed and sold. But since I had posted progress images in an earlier thread, I think it's probably OK to post the final image now.

Thanks, Marcia! Yeah, it sure felt good to sell a few paintings recently - my first ever!

Re: Welcome to What's on Your Easel...December 2017



This one is approaching the stage when I'm not sure when to quit before it all goes South. I'm thinking I'll add a bit more detail around the head but I want to keep the looseness of the painting. Any input is appreciated.

Re: Welcome to What's on Your Easel...December 2017

This is a very nuanced painting, with just enough of the fish highlighted to pull it out of the background, but not so much that it looks like it is 'on top' of the background. I would consider it finished. Well done!
