I have not posted in a few days as I have been busy digging through reference material, gathering up ideas for small works for the upcoming Waterfowl Festival in the middle of next month. This little work, begun about an hour and a half ago (12:15 now), will go quickly as it is just 5" square. But I wanted to show some in-progress images of it as I go today. There will be a lot of over layering, building up of darks in this one as I want to make it quite 'moody'. I'll give an update in another hour or so . . .
(1:20 PM update)
(2:30 PM update)
(3:55 PM update . . . well, I did have to stop for lunch!)
And, here is the completed work at 5:15 PM. A good day's work at the drawing board. I'm rather pleased with this little work . . . 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".
