Finally I got an hour to do a little painting. I've started a horse picture that my cousin Vicki took. So far I've blocked in the horses in white to get them anchored in place while I work on the background.
The next one is a fishing creel. I took the snapshot last winter at a friends cabin. I didn't draw this one first but just quickly used charcoal to roughly sketch it in then pub a thin layer of paint to block in too. I'll layer more paint and get more detail later.
