What's on your easel 4/12/09 through 4/18/09

Not any updates on my recent work. To tired to even look at it with a critical eye. Worked a lot in the garden today.

This horse is wonderful Kathrin.
So very lifelike.

Re: What's on your easel 4/12/09 through 4/18/09

awwww, thank you Elizabeth, Dan and Kathleen
the colours are such a hit and miss tho but I am starting to get the hang of using the brushes
I am just about to scan it again and then I will work more on it
Any idea how I could lighten the cheek again ? It is gone too dark

Put on the last two layers of red and added a black metal leaf product.

Re: What's on your easel 4/12/09 through 4/18/09

Looking good Harold
thank you Susan Yep, I am on the way to building my very own RIL I got a Nikon D80 going everywhere with me in the car and my breaks at work are more often then not spend around the fields, weather permitting of course.
But this pretty boy here really posed for the photo and made it easy. Now if I could only get his colour right

anyway, here the last scan. I worked mainly on the headcollar, started darkening the nose and glazed a bit more over the neck area.
And now back to work on it....

Kathrin: Great job on the horse. He looks so lifelike I just want to reach out and pet him!

Here's one that I've been working on lately.
I think I'm going to call it done though, cause I'm getting tired of looking at it.
12X12" acrylic on board.

Re: What's on your easel 4/12/09 through 4/18/09

thanks Steve I like your painting too
E.P. yep, definitely looks like stained glass, very nice
Howard, your work is so unique. Love the squiggles too.

spend like 2 hours refining the eye and the front of the head above and below the nose-band, lightening the cheek and working on the head collar again. Doesn't show much here I am afraid but it makes a difference to the real thing
Hope you are not sick of looking at it already
