Though I at first found my Self up to my boot tops with the "frosting" on the Winter firs... I rethought the first impression I wanted... after "conferencing" with my trusty sidekick Deb. She has a great eye and often gives "Me" a perspective that sheds light on my predicament at hand. Usually I can work out my own problems... but this was one of those occasions when I required input.
Tomorrow... will be spent in "pushing and pulling" values in a few areas... but for the most part what you see in the jpeg posted is the final stage of the project. The canvases are gallery wraps... one and three-quarter inch stretcher bars. I paint around these completely to match the colour and the perspective at the edges all the way round. I'll get at that over the weekend to make my Wednesday delivery date deadline at AyrSpace.
Hope that everyone enjoyed the project as much as "I". I learned a great deal from the process... and would repeat such an undertaking again... after a rest!HAHA!!!
Good Painting to ALL
