**skip to page two for the finished pics ** I showed the start to Dally Banjo earlier, and she gave me a bit more courage to pop it in a thread. I've enjoyed reading other peoples arty threads, so here goes This is my first commissioned bit of art- it's oils on canvas, and I only started today. I had to re-use an old canvas, so it still shows through a bit now but won't when it's finished. The colours are just a base and a guide to the markings right now, the finished thing will be more dun coloured. Tomorrow I am lowering the skyline (the grass is too high right now) and starting detail work. So, here goes! Oh, also, as per usual the pics are awful as they're taken on my webcam, so a lot of detail and the correct colour is lost This morning: Now: And a bit further back: I hope to be finished by Wednesday or Thursday, I tend to paint quickly, but it depends on how thick the paint is and how fast it dries.
