Painting update of red squirrels

FINALLY! I was able to sit for a bit and start working on this painting again. It feels so good and I can't wait to frame this piece as I already have the mats and frame chosen. I felt like working with blues today so I completed the last of the maple collection buckets. Next I will attempt the tiny little feet of the red squirrel on the bucket before I continue on to the maple bark on the right foreground.

I'm amazed at the tree bark! And those buckets look like they would be so much fun to paint. :-)

Colette, your vacation and lack of painting opportunities coincided with my own. I took almost as many reference photos as you too!

I look forward to seeing your squirrel painting completed - the composition is great.

Thanks for the feedback comments fellow artists. I've never attempted such a large and complex piece before so I do have to make a real effort to finishe it soon before I get bored.
