Still Rockin'

{Oil on Board, 2010}
Just another post showing the most recent progress on this piece. Now that I have most things worked out in terms of color, it is time to tidy it up and start shaping things up with the paint! I also darkened several areas so that I can bring out the lights again. It is hard for me to work from a stark white (or light) background, so sometimes I just have to re-neutralize things and go from there.

Candace! I don't know how you do it..these are amazing works in progress..really, really truly. I especially love the drama in the "girl walking home" - the perspective of the animals in the foreground is splendid. And it's awesome to see how you work - all of the details are so interesting. I have great respect for those of you who do oil and do it so well. I only tried once and it was so very difficult for me. Looking forward to seeing how they all progress. Much creative time and peace to you!

Hey Pretty lady,
It's been a while. I know that you have been busy and I have too. Happy New Year my friend. Hope that it's off to a great start! Your illustration is sooooooo wonderfully vintage and takes me back to when I was a kid. It's truly wonderful and I 'm going to take your advice about the bears. So glad you liked them.
Thanks.
me
