Finally done with my "Comfy Couch" oil portrait.  Sorry,I take lousy photos of my work.  I have to use a tripod next time so I can make sure it is level.  It always looks like it is through the camera, but then when I crop it, the truth comes out.

I know it is the end of August, but I'm thinking of the autumn colors already.

A Work in Progress.
Oil Portrait of 3 little couch potatoes that I call "Tatertots"
I am trying to capture the way the sunlight shines on the children and on the couch.  Not such as easy task.  I am working in transparent layers, just to make it interesting.  I have not yet finished any of the boys faces or hands.  I'm leaving that for last. It is a sweet photo that my daughter took of her little boys and their friend.  I just had to paint it.  Wish me luck.,

I am not sure how I feel about digital paintings.  What is the purpose to take a photo and reproduce it on the computer with a digital drawing program that gives you "layers" to work your magic with.  It's more of a skill to me that actual painting medium is.  How do you feel about it?

Nothing can really take the place of a pencil. pen, or paintbrush.

All done with this one.  The frame works beautifully with the setting.

Even though it is framed, I am still working on it.  Just some fine tuning to do on their faces.  This has been a very hard one.

Day 3 of work on this oil painting
I am working on adding some foreground buds and bugs.  It feels done but I will wait a couple of days to see what I don't see today.
