A change...














I had very little time to paint today, but while on the phone with Dell tech support for a computer problem, I re-did the background for the hawk. The photo doesn't really show it well, it is a combination of light gray put down first, then some browns and purple, all mixed together. I was looking for a warm winter background color and am very happy with it.......next I'll do the hawk details, then bring the branches back in, but not necessarily the way they were before. I'm excited about my new ideas for this painting!

Updates...
















I spent a little time with my mural today....still more to do, including making the horse in the right forefront a bit bigger....and still plenty of details to tend to.
The horse painting is coming also, still need to finish his legs and feet and put in highlights; today I did shadows.
I will get back to my hawk painting when the horse is finished....
