Another Photo

This is a photo under sunlight without the flash. I think it is a more accurate photo!

Kennebec Rd Sheep

Yesterday I worked all day on a painting of rocks and mud at low tide. Everything was going well until the end. I basically destroyed it. That's the risk you take with watercolors.
I trashed the painting and felt really angry.
Then, that evening I made a few sketches of these sheep. I woke up today, watched Tottenham my favorite English team. Then I did this painting.
Green is the artist nightmare, but I think I tamed it very well. The real painting looks great! The photo doesn't give it justice!!

Work in Progress 3

The painting looks a little different because the sun is a little lower and it affected the photo!

The last stages will include spraying dark spots to indicate sand and gravel on the mud flats..I will also finish all the windows!!

Portland, Work in progress

It's six thirty on Saturday. I am ready to go to work. I am excited to start a new painting. I will try to put pictures as the work progresses. Hopefully I will still have the excitement when I come back in the afternoon.
