Another update with what has been done today. I'm working left to right and there is much more yet to do. It is truly one of life's blessing to be able to enjoy the way I spend my time. Again, this photo is showing darker than the one on my hard drive. Must learn to compensate for that.
Doing this study has been an eye opener. It is not easy trying to follow brush strokes, mix colors, etc., and I'm not doing a very good job. But that is the whole point isn't it, learning to see and place strokes. I don't have all the colors used for this painting so I'm trying to come as close as I can. At this stage, I am trying to get the placement of the larger elements.
