Well, I am pleased with my progress on this painting...didn't meet my end of the week deadline so I am moving it forward till Monday! I have books to do for my accountant, (a job I would put off forever...they were due Aug. 1st.)
This painting I have been trying not to paint every detail I am working on well thought out placement of value and colour rather than every branch. I really admire the work of American artist "Clyde Aspevig" he is a master at painting realism without painting ALL the details. Check His work out at www.clydeaspevig.com You won't be disappointed! (that's if you like realism).
