Getting Closer to Completion
What a journey this has been from the first day onward. Each day, I have worked a little on this piece and am nearing the stage where I will start graining the edges (see post 2).
Ships and birds and flowers and leaves--one stroke at a time. I am really loving this. I think that I will be adding a little more of this red shade. I love love love it because it brings this piece into the 21st century.
Also, I love the gate. I intend to add more ships...maybe tomorrow or the next, I will have a whole fleet of them.
I also added the bird. I am going to paint in some more, however, I am just not quite ready for that step. I needed to add a few more balls of leaves to this tree in the center.
Let me know, if you ever see a tree like this, please.
My studio has the heat turned very low... When the heat is normal, the paint dries too fast for my liking. Right now I am on a ladder taking this picture, praying that I don't fall off.
