SNOW again! and an update on the figurative wip

WIP Reading with Poppa©2010c.l.burgess cont...
ok..almost there...some more gentle glazing, mostly on Poppa...the reds on his face are popping out like splotches.....they have to recede a bit and I need to build the body of Poppa's shirt and paint it like the child's, with a few directional finishing strokes and deepen the background behind the girl. Basically that is it and taking a better photo of the finished piece. the kight is too white from the snowfall...even in the studio.
Then off to the next painting....
Whose woods these are...
richmond,va backyard feb2010

whoaa....very beautiful until you start wondering how many trees will come down...when we bought this house, we couldn't see this house(an acre away) for the trees, then hurricane Isabelle took about 50 tall oaks and pines among other things. We just now have come back from that disaster...5 years later...so I hope we don't lose any more...

Well, the ultimate challenge is to paint this scene outside my studio window...I guess sepia and white might do the trick, huh?

I may just relax tomorrow, read and watch the superbowl. enjoy! Back on monday...
