Wowsers this is beautiful. Even better on your website. And what an impressive full sheet color chart you have! Also like the WIP on the easel.

Re: Lots and Lots of Pansies Wip

Sandy,

This is looking really wonderful.

It took a while to open up on the website, but it was worth the wait to see your color chart and set up.

Love to watch your progress.

Sylvia

Re: Lots and Lots of Pansies Wip

Thanks Gail

Hi Jan thanks, it sure is lively, I hope I finish it before next year

Hi Sylvia thanks so much! I will go and resize it on the site to make it load faster, thanks for letting me know.

Elainepsq thanks, I will sure know how to do drops by the time I am finished. Funny thing is there are marks on the flowers and the paint is doing funny things. Not sure if it is the sizing or what but I am forced to put lots of drops because of it.

Hi Gary Thanks, the colour chart has been an unbelievable lesson for me. I learned so much about glazing. I really suggest it to anyone who whats to learn about glazing colours. It is so easy now, all I have to do is look at that, pick the colour I need and glaze away. All the guess work is done.

Thanks so much Norah I hope you don't have to wait to long till I am finished but we know how long I take

Sandy, I think, that the glazing chart and how you did it would be a valuable addition to the "handbook" .

Cheers

Gail

Super Sandy! Love the colors...and your color chart on your site is amazing! The site did open slow, as already noted above, but worth the wait.

Re: Lots and Lots of Pansies Wip

Hi Sandy,
it looks great yet.
I just finished my pansies-painting, so I know, what a lot of work it is.
Yours will be very beautiful.

Re: Lots and Lots of Pansies Wip

Wow! I love all the little details you get to see on your website, like the little ant and ladybug! You have the patience of a saint!!
Are you going to show us this technique in June? I can't wait!
