EAGLES!

Image
Today i briefly went in search of a wild area where I have committed to mark a new trail - didn't find it, but while looking for it I heard a bird cry in the air that I had never heard - looked up to see a bird going after 2 bald eagles that were circling the area.......here in Stafford, my fuzzy photos of bald eagles! Made my day! : )

Determination....

Image
This painting is certainly teaching me patience...thankfully, my stubborn determination keeps me coming back to get it right...and I am still not finished but I like it more and more every time I put the brush down.

New feathers..

The river painting revisited...

Image
I have realized that I am not happy with a painting done quickly in the pursuit of accomplishing a painting every day....so I brought this painting back to my easel today and am almost finished with it. I do like it better now...

Back to the geese...

Back to my geese painting today....I have discovered that a brown (darker) underpainting would have worked better than the golds....I am having to add a lot of darks. I learn by doing....
