Slowly inching may way through foliage


After a good night's rest, I've decided that I should work the rest of this painting in stages by completing little sections or areas at a time. This seems to be the best approach for me now because of the repetitive nature of the leaves really aggravates my nerves.

I still need to go back and change the values on the foliage in front of the deer by darkening more spaces between leaves but will most likely just keep that for last.

You have made some nice progress, Colette!

The deer is so beautifully drawn. Those leaves.....I agree work it in small areas and concentrate on them separately, otherwise your eyes get so confused. I've recently finished a zebra, the stripes where so confusing, I ended up tackling it in sections, then bringing them all together at the end.

Yes, working the leaves in stages sounds like a good plan. You are doing such a good job with this piece, Colette!

I can't believe this is a painting it is so life like!
