What can I say, this is finally finished. I started this in November 2012 and 4 months later its finished. What I learned: 1. Life can really get in the way when painting. When I started this I actually wanted to do two paintings at once (I’m still working on the other), but have way through decided to concentrate on this one and then on the other one. 2. don’t under estimate wood grain. The wood grain in the panel in the background and the drum was what I was most worried about and taking the time to do it right payed off. 3. Get back on the horse when you fall off, you’ll thank yourself later.
The winter over here in Germany (the Rhine Valley) just doesn’t want to leave. I bought a Penbrush and small watercolor set to go out and paint outside, but the weather just doesn’t want to cooperate.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look,
