Current Progress


Here is five additional days of adding to this painting. Yesterday I just couldn't get it adjusted at all. I don't like how my letters ended up on this painting BUT

I do have a better plan for the next one!
My colors are lot richer than the picture shows
Pretty much I think I wanted to get rid of the letters so I kept adding the gesso in dry brush...just kept swiping it on.
First I did try adding a little color around them that didn't send me so i added more texture
i like the texture but still don't (didn't) like those letters...
but the letters ARE needed as a description to where to find this house
which IS the theme and subject of the painting...
what a dilemma...
Mostly because I refuse to let myself just 'go' with painting in collage style.
I think i loosened up a LOT! considering.
What would you have done to it?
Thanks...you can click the image to enlarge.
as I look at the project it isn't that bad actually...i do think i am going to go back within some of the areas and maybe add more color...
there might be another picture coming of this project...

WOW! This is beautiful. I love the colors, especially the yellow highlighting the house. The fence is also a wonderful addition along with that lovely tree at the top. It just seems to draw me in.

Hi, Mar! I really like the "ransom note style" of the lettering... all mixed up and random. Very cool! :-)
