This painting is still on the easel but I thought I'd post it now. I'm considering adding a twig of leaves wrapping around the left side of the pitcher to round out the composition but I'm still mulling it over. I did a test image in photoshop and I think it's worth a try. Other than that, I just want to make sure the background transitions are nice and smooth (looks pretty good here but that's the wonders of Photoshop) It looks pretty good in person but the photograph brought out some rough areas that I'm not really happy with....
funny how that works!
Anyway, here it is. I put a small image with the added twig that I worked up in PS just to see if I'd like it. Comments are welcomed but may be ignored! LOL

OLD OAK & REDBUD
20 x 24 inches
Oil on Cradled Wood Panel
Both of these paintings will be available next week through
COMPANIONS...I finally finished the companion painting to OLD OAK & REDBUD and the two paintings are ready to be delivered to La Posada de Santa Fe. I'm looking forward to being able to hand deliver them and enjoy a short road trip to Santa Fe and a stay at this beautiful hotel! What a treat!
It's always nice to get through a project like this one and it's fun to get started on the next painting. I have a good one planned and I'll try to post some progress paintings as I work through it.
