Took a goodly portion of yesterday to get this done. Taping, sealing, sealing, painting. The drying time was greatly increased by the material used to create the pattern. Waiting 24 hours before I do anything else.

Re: What's on Your Easel 1-24 thru 1-30

Zena, very nice! You night consider darkening the background below the blossom just a bit....IMO, might make it "pop" a bit more. The lighter area there doesn't read "right". And have just a bit more of a "highlight" in each dewdrop...kind of like the highlight in an eye.

Howard, is that Liquid Silver that you used for the "panes"???


I'm kind of stalled on my bird, I've had trouble with that far wing & I've reisited the urge to gesso over that portion.

Kathie, the speed that you are working those cows is amazing. It is looking great.
Jan, I agree with Dee, especially about adding a little more reflected light into the dew drops. The rose is gorgeous, really well done.
Howard I like where you are going so far with this one. I really like the strong red. Anxious to see what else you are going to do with it.
This is where I have gotten with the bear. Depending how the day goes tomorrow I'll either tackle him, or just finish all the grasses down to a level with his feet.

Hi All,

Sharon, your grass, rocks and all are wonderful. Can't wait to see the bear come to like!
Kathie, your cows are great as always!
Howard, always fun to see where you go with your pieces.
Zena, love your water spots!

Here's my latest attempt. It's from a ref I took last week of a frosty fogging day. Fortunately there will be lots of winter trees and shrubs to cover up the bridge imperfections and perspective problems.
