I finished "Lone Pine" this morning. This 14"x32" acrylic on canvas was truly a joy to discover. I think the photo despite my best efforts came out a bit different blue for the sky. The sky is more cerulean blue than the ultramarine it looks like on my monitor. I have included the unfinished version alongside the finished version. I didn't do too much more to it...gave it a bit more depth in the forest floor, and worked on the ground of the sky as I talked about the other day...I saw a black hole in the detail and corrected that after I took these pictures, but it looks very close. All in all I am quite pleased with the end result, but have a few ideas as to how to approach the future "babies" that will come.
