Whew! This took longer than expected, as usual! I have been painting the stone walls with some false starts here and there. First was getting the perspective correct - then the values in light and shadow, then painting believable stones. I am happy to report that most of the stone work is done - I am anxious to get on to the shutters and the main attraction itself. I have not painted feathers before - fur, but not feathers. The colors look challenging too. Well, we never will improve and learn without a challenge. That is why I am all over the place with subject matter - I want to try everything!
This photo is a bit washed out because I forgot to turn off my spot lights. Next time I hope to have some more COLOR on the canvas. I have given myself a deadline of two more weeks to get this done - we shall see.
